Weymouth Marina Complex Project

A number of ideas from the survey "Wake Up Weymouth" have been put together into one huge project the "Weymouth Marina Complex Project"

It is a long term development culminating in a celebration in 2024  of the  launching of the last Fairmiles type B vessel built in Weymouth.

On the journey to that celebration we hope to create a complex to serve the community and draw in visitors.  More details are below, but we need help for such a huge project. If you are interested in learning more please contact the lead on this project:  Fred Hawthorne (FH6649@gmail.com)

Mission: to create “the Heart of Weymouth” by providing an extension to the downtown core.

Vision:  a complex which will help to bring tourism into the village and benefit the existing and future businesses, the citizens, and the “health” of the community.

What is it? Develop the land on the north-east side of the Sissiboo River at the location of the John H. Leblanc Shipyards.
