Thursday, April 13, 2017 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is on track to create better travel options for residents and visitors, as proposed land use and transportation planning strategies are being finalized as part of the Integrated Mobility Plan.
The Integrated Mobility Plan will guide the design and investment in roadway, transit, and active transportation infrastructure and services over the next two decades, which will result in complete streets that provide improved transportation options for all users. This plan is being developed in conjunction with other approved and in-progress land use and transportation planning documents, including the Centre Plan, Moving Forward Together Plan, Active Transportation Priorities Plan, and the Green Network Plan.
Residents are invited to attend one of the upcoming public consultation sessions being held to present draft strategies contained within the Integrated Mobility Plan before it is finalized and brought forward to Council later this year. The sessions are being held as follows:
- Wednesday, April 19, 6 – 8 p.m.| Cole Harbour Place (Westphal Room), 51 Forest Hills Parkway, Cole Harbour
- Thursday, April 20, 12 – 2 p.m. | Central Library (Paul O’Regan Hall), 5440 Spring Garden Road, Halifax
- Thursday, April 20, 6 – 8 p.m. | NSCC Technology Campus (Atrium), 5685 Leeds Street, Halifax
- Monday, April 24, 6 – 8 p.m. | NSCC Waterfront Campus (Presentation Theatre), 80 Mawiomi Place, Dartmouth
- Wednesday, April 26, 6 – 8 p.m.| Ecole Secondaire du Sommet (Cafeteria), 500 Larry Uteck Boulevard, Halifax
- Thursday, April 27, 6 – 8 p.m. | Acadia Hall, 650 Sackville Drive, Lower Sackville
Session presentation materials and survey questions will be posted on the online engagement portal Shape Your City Halifax on Wednesday, April 19, for those who are unable to attend a meeting in person.
This is the third and final round of public consultation sessions that will be held as part of this project, in advance of the plan being presented to the Transportation Standing Committee and Regional Council over the next few months.
