Public Engagement on Halifax Green Network Plan

Thursday, May 11, 2017 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Green Network Plan is nearing the final phase of development and the municipality is inviting residents to share their input at upcoming public meetings.

Regional Council has identified the need for a strategic planning framework that will inform best practices for protecting and managing open space as an interconnected system across the Halifax Region. The Halifax Green Network Plan (HGNP) will help the municipality to advance these goals.

Residents are invited to attend any of the following public meetings:
• Monday, May 15, from 6 – 8:00 p.m. at the NSCC Waterfront Campus (Presentation Theatre), 80 Mawiomi Place, Dartmouth
• Tuesday, May 16, from 6 – 8:00 p.m. at the Atlantica Hotel Halifax (Guild Hall), 1980 Robie Street, Halifax
• Wednesday, May 17, from 6 – 8:00 p.m. at Ecole Secondaire du Sommet (Auditorium), 500 Larry Uteck Boulevard, Halifax
• Wednesday, May 31, from 7 – 9:00 p.m. at Sir John A. MacDonald High School, 31 Scholars Rd, Upper Tantallon
• Wednesday, June 7, from 6 – 8:00 p.m. at the Musquodoboit Valley Bicentennial Theatre & Cultural Centre, 12390 Hwy 224, Middle Musquodoboit

• Monday, June 12, from 6 – 8:00 p.m. at the Old School Community Gathering Place, 7962 Highway #7, Musquodoboit Harbour

Each session will begin with a presentation of the work to date, key findings and proposed broad-scale planning directions then there will be opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.

Halifax’s open space landscape is exceptional in its beauty and diversity, as well as its environmental, socio-cultural and economic value. Being deliberate in how we protect and use open space over the long-term is important to advancing regional planning objectives for sustainable growth and the development of more liveable, complete communities.
