Cobourg's Coat of Arms

The Town’s new web site looks better and has some improved features like search but you may find the information below helps with your navigation.  This page will be updated from time to time.

There are actually three sites with links between them:

  • – The main site
  • Civic Web – a data base with a record of previous meetings and all bylaws.  Lists all meetings, their agendas and Minutes.  Also is where you go to view Council meetings online – see procedure here.
  • Tourism

Also, the Concert hall at Victoria Hall has its own web site.
