Reasons for a Federal Assessment

On September 13, 2004, it was determined that an environmental assessment was required in relation to the project because Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada considered providing financial assistance to the proponent.

Project Description (as posted in the Notice of Commencement)

The proponent intends to construct and operate a Boston Pizza franchise in the Truro Power Centre on the Millbrook Reserve. The building will be approximately 555 m2 and will seat 266 people inside with more seating available on the patio in summer months. The Truro Power Centre is located along Highway 102 and offers direct highway access thereby being a prime location for visitors passing through the area, as well as for Truro area residents. Standard construction methods and materials will be utilized. There are no accessory projects associated with this undertaking.

Final Decision

A decision was taken on November 22, 2005 and was that the authority may exercise any power or perform any duty or function with respect to the project because, after taking into consideration the screening report and taking into account the implementation of appropriate mitigation measures, the authority is of the opinion that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
