Exploratory Borehole Drilling for Spring Garden Development Assessment

(Friday, February 13, 2009) - Work is underway for the Spring Garden development assessment - HRM's consultants, Colliers International, will be conducting test drilling activities on the Municipality's Clyde Street parking lots. This activity will occur between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday, February 16, 2009 and Tuesday, February 17, 2009. Boreholes will be drilled at multiple locations on the sites. The purpose of the test drilling is to obtain soil and geological samples to assess the ability of the land to support potential development.

In January 2009, the Halifax Regional Municipality awarded a development assessment study for municipal lands in the Spring Garden Road area to a local consulting team led by Colliers International. Further to the recommendations of the Spring Garden/Queen Joint Public Lands (approved by Council in 2007) the results of this study will assist the Municipality in preparing a call for proposals to redevelop these lands in partnership with the private sector. The information gained through this study will also contribute to the planning for a proposed Central Library in the Spring Garden Road area.

Borehole Drilling:
Date: Monday, February 16th & Tuesday, February 17th from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Place: Clyde Street Parking Lots
