Councillor Wants to Preserve Historic Hydrostone Community

(Friday, April 15/05)-- Councillor Patrick Murphy is looking for volunteers from Halifax’s north end to serve on a community committee aimed at preserving the history of the Hydrostone area.

Councillor Murphy said the committee will be asked to bring forward suggestions for improvements to the Fort Needham Park; the Hydrostone Park, on Young Street; and the historic Hydrostone area.

"This historic neighbourhood is one of the jewels of this municipality. I am grateful to the residents of the area who bring forward their concerns to me, and I look forward to working with the committee to ensure the historic nature of the Hydrostone area is preserved and protected," he said.

Councillor Murphy said a local resident, Alexandra Grant- Paul, suggests the new committee be named the ‘Friends of the Hydrostone.’

Ms. Grant-Paul said "I chose to live in the Hydrostone, because a sense of community is extremely important to me. The area is steeped in history and is quite unique as an urban neighbourhood.”

Residents interested in serving on the Hydrostone Committee should contact Councillor Murphy at 476-2238 or Dan Norris, Regional Heritage Coordinator, at 490-4339.
