TAAC Revitalization ProjectIn August 2022, Kody Blois, Member of Parliament for Kings—Hants, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities; Dave Ritcey, Member of Legislative Assembly for Truro—Bible Hill—Millbrook—Salmon River, and Town of Truro, Mayor Bill Mills, announced funding for the revitalization of the Truro Amateur Athletic Club (TAAC), the Multi-Use sport facility and senior baseball facility.

Funding will be used to upgrade and split the current TAAC grounds into two different locations. The existing TAAC location will be revitalized to include a multi-sport, all-weather field and a synthetic, eight-lane running track with regulation throwing areas, which will provide athletes and casual players with a high-quality training facility.

The current seniors’ baseball diamond will be relocated to Argus Drive to improve accessibility, and it will be upgraded to reflect championship-quality baseball field standards.

Total project costs are estimated at $8.6 million. The Government of Canada is investing $3.2 million towards the project, while the Government of Nova Scotia is providing more than $2.6 million. The Town of Truro is contributing $500,000, and the Municipality of the County of Colchester is providing $350,000. Community donations and commitments are ongoing and will exceed $2 million when complete. Anyone wishing to donate towards this project can stop into Town Hall, 695 Prince Street. All donations to this project are tax-deductible. 

Construction of both sites started in the Fall of 2023. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2024 and ready for seasonal use starting in 2025. 

The project would not have been possible without the generous support of the community, both through sponsorships and donations.
