SHUBENACADIE: The sale of property in the Snides Lake area of Shubenacadie has been finalized.

In a release last week, East Hants Municipal Council announced it and Sipekne’katik First Nation have closed the sale of property in Shubenacadie for $1 million.

Located near Exit 10, Highway 102 in Shubenacadie, the Snides Lake property consists of five parcels of land with a total acreage of approximately 235 acres.

In June 2017, East Hants Municipal Council deemed the Snides Lake property surplus to the needs of the municipality and placed the property for sale on the open market.

Future development of the land will be decided by Sipekne’katik First Nation.
