Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is inviting residents to participate in upcoming public consultations being hosted as part of a planned review of the 2008 Community Facility Master Plan.
The 2008 Community Facility Master Plan (CFMP) provided strategic direction and recommendations related to community and recreation facility development, and protocol for budget and project development. It’s currently being updated to ensure it remains relevant and takes into consideration changes to Council focus areas, demographics, and priorities.
The review also allows for citizen engagement to verify and validate public expectations and priorities.
You are invited to participate in one or more of the following public consultation opportunities:
