HRM Seeks Public Input on Proposed District Boundary Changes

(Tuesday, November 2/10) - The next stage in the process to redraw the Halifax Regional Municipality’s electoral boundaries is about to begin and Mayor Peter Kelly is encouraging residents to continue their input.

“We received valuable public feedback in February when we began this review of polling districts in our growing communities,” the Mayor said. “Now we’d like residents to review the recommendations and provide us with their comments before HRM’s submission to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board.”

Last February, the Mayor chaired a series of public meetings to review the municipality’s District Boundaries, something required by law to ensure voter parity during municipal elections.

Recommendations from the first round of meetings went before Regional Council for input this summer and must now go back to the public for final input before being submitted to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board.

The public meetings will be held from November 3rd until the 10th 2010 at various locations throughout HRM. Locations and details of the meetings can be found at

If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled meetings, the proposed boundaries can be viewed online at, or by contacting the Municipal Clerk’s office by email, fax at 490-4208 or by mail to the Municipal Clerk, City Hall, PO Box 1749 Halifax NS, B3J 3A5.
