Community Visioning Kicks Off in Spryfield and Penhorn Area


(Tuesday, May 20, 2008) - Halifax Regional Municipality is hosting VisionHRM kick off events in the communities of Spryfield and the Penhorn area of Dartmouth on Thursday, May 22nd.

VisionHRM is a community-led initiative. Community Visioning provides an informal opportunity for communities to think creatively about how they could function, how they might change, and what they might look like over a 25-year time frame. Some of the ways residents may get involved include volunteering as a member of a Community Liaison Group or participating in hands-on learning through community-based workshops and informal community meetings.

Fall River, Musquodoboit Harbour, and the Bedford Waterfront area were the first communities to participate in the Community Visioning process. Their Visions and Action Plans were endorsed by Regional Council in Fall 2007, and the communities are now entering the implementation stage.
