HRMbyDesign Centre Plan public consultation gets underway

(Monday, April 2, 2012) Halifax, NS – HRM citizens are invited to participate in public consultation meetings being held to initiate the first phase of HRMbyDesign’s Centre Plan. This phase of the Centre Plan will deliver new land use policies for several commercial corridors in Halifax and Dartmouth in 2012 (click here for boundary maps), to ensure that the character and scale of neighbourhoods is protected, while accommodating new opportunities for well-designed densification.

Two public consultation meetings will be held in each Halifax and Dartmouth neighbourhood where growth opportunities and challenges have been identified. The first meeting will provide information on the approach and gain community input on the boundary of the area, and how the Centre Plan can protect and build on community’s assets. The second meeting will propose policy and by-law changes based on feedback received at the first meeting.
