The CLG was tasked with leading a community engagement process and developing a Vision and Action Plan for the community to help implement the Regional Plan at the community level. The consultation included public forums, workshops, a community-wide survey and consultations with individual community groups.

The community will have two weeks to comment on the draft Vision and Action plan. The final document will be presented to the Regional Plan Advisory Committee and HRM Regional Council for approval and will guide future planning for the area.
