TRURO, N.S.

Three years after the forced shutdown of its Young Street location, the Colchester Community Workshops has purchased the Halliday property on Arthur Street.

The new site is right next door to the organization’s main facility.

The Young Street building had been home to some assembly and workshop operations, a convenience store and also provided storage space until a heavy accumulation of snow in March 2015 resulted in a partial roof collapse that eventually saw the building being demolished.

The group’s board is now in the process of evaluating its newly acquired property to determine how best to utilize the space, “in a manner that enhances current programs and seeks to fulfill future needs,” it said in a news release.
