Bedford residents enjoy a stroll on the new Bedford Harbourwalk during its official opening back in November 2009.
A public meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 16 at 7 p.m. in the Basinview Drive School cafeteria.
Back in June 2009, after years of discussions and public consultations, Bedfordites were presented with three conceptual plans for the Bedford Waterfront during a public meeting.
Developed by Ekistics Planning and Design in Dartmouth, all three plans aim at ensuring the waterfront is “alive” all seasons of the year with multi-use features related to work, living, play and study.
The designs were presented by Rob LeBlanc, a planner with Ekistics. LeBlanc explained how some of the inspiration for the designs came from a public workshop that took place in April 2009.
The area outlined in the three plans encompasses the in-fill lands between the Bedford Highway and Bedford Basin, from the Boutiler Boatyard to the Clearwater Seafoods property.
As stated at halifax.ca/visionhrm/bedfordwaterfront, on June 16 Ekistics “will present the draft plan, followed by an opportunity for public questions and comments. The plan culminates from the ideas provided to date to a steering committee, composed of community representatives and property owners within the study area.”
