Reminder: Public Meetings - HRM's Governance and District Boundary Review
(Tuesday, March 2/10) - HRM’s Governance and District Boundary Review Committee, Chaired by Mayor Peter Kelly, is holding a series of public meetings as part of the first phase of HRM's review of Polling Districts required prior to the 2012 Municipal Election.
Phase one of the public meetings is all about governance and addresses questions such as the size, population and number of HRM's polling districts, the powers and size of community councils and Regional Council, and how Council can best represent residents of HRM.
“We've invited and are encouraging everyone to participate in the meetings,” says Mayor Peter Kelly. “The feedback and suggestions from residents are very valuable as we move forward on how to best structure Regional Council for effective decision-making.”
Under the HRM Charter, HRM is required to undertake a full district boundary review every eight years. HRM must complete a full district boundary review to be submitted to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (NSUARB) by December 31, 2010.
The final three meetings are coming up:
