Shippagan approves study for 'tourist stop'
Shippagan wants to do a better job of welcoming tourists.
On Monday Shippagan Council approved a motion that would allow for a feasibility and viability study of a 'tourist stop' that would include an visitor information centre.
The development would be located on town land near the wharf; an area mayor Anita Savoie-Robichaud says is already very popular for tourists due to the view of several boats docked there.
Corbo Engineering will carry out the study at a cost of approximately $43,500.
