The Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (MODL – population ~25,000) is a district municipality in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia.
MODL has three main interests in natural asset management. First, it wants a better understanding of the natural assets upon which it relies. This will ensure they take natural assets into account in future projects and policies, and helps focus efforts on their preservation. Second, MODL would like information regarding the role of natural assets to support infrastructure renewal. In this context, MODL plans to use inventory results to support asset management planning and the current capital assets plan. Third, MODL wants to ensure the inventory supports other plans and processes. For example, it could enhance MODL’s current land use planning and by-laws, improve planning strategies, and guide Minimum Land Use planning.
