North Arm Cove is a quiet little coastal village now but had some dreams been realised it could well have turned into a bustling port city. " The most central spot, where the new city is to be in the Great Port of the New Northern State. "
Did you ever wonder why ... Some people spell Boulevarde with a final E while there are others who spell Boulevard with no extra E? Can both be right?
Council, it appears, is confused because some of our local signs have the E at the end but most official Council records show no extra E. Indeed most Boulevards in the world go without an E to finish. Although Hawks Nest of course has "The Boulevarde"! That final E hasn't been washed away - yet.
As we continue to campaign for improved telecommunications in the Cove it is worth remembering that this local struggle began many years ago. But before relating a bit of that history here is a quick question:
How many permanent residents do you think would have lived in our North Arm Cove village back in 1968?

Do you have old snaps of the Cove?
In August 2017, the Residents Association will be celebrating its 50th anniversary! That will be 50 years of community members working together for the betterment of all of us. An achievement certainly worth celebrating.
To help the celebrations, we are looking for old photographs of the Cove and its residents. Do you (or perhaps past residents that you know) have any old photos tucked away in boxes or dusty albums? Any snaps of views, buildings, people, events? We would love to see them and use them if possible. If you do, please send me a message. Maybe you...
It seems the Cove's relationship with Council has, for many years, mostly been a case of we give and they take. A significant amount of rate money has flowed to Council over the past half century from the North Arm Cove village area and the many nearby non-urban lots. Yet it has been a continual struggle for North Arm Cove to gain the attention of Council when they so often seem totally preoccupied elsewhere.
