Public Engagement, Halifax Green Network Plan

(NOTE: Please see update where June 8 has now been rescheduled for June 12 at a different venue.)

The Halifax Regional Municipality is conducting the third and final phase of public engagement for the Halifax Green Network Plan, a decision-making framework for the conservation of a region-wide network of open space. A number of planning and implementation directions have been drafted using public input and study results from the earlier phases of work and are contained in the newly released Halifax Green Network Plan Primer Report. More information on the Halifax Green Network Plan is available online at www.halifax.ca/HalifaxGreenNetwork.

Public engagement for this phase will be launched with a series of public meetings across HRM and online engagement. Input from the public will help refine the planning directions and develop more detailed recommendations and actions for the final Plan. Once approved, the Halifax Green Network Plan will guide the Municipality and landowners in determining where and how open space should be conserved for multiple environmental, social, cultural and economic benefits including:

 

  • Ecosystems & Biodiversity
  • Working Landscapes
  • Recreation and Trails
  • Community Shaping, and
  • Cultural Landscapes

The  public meetings across the Region start next week in Dartmouth and will include a presentation of the work to date followed by a Q&A period and interactive open house session.

The following meetings are being held (see May 16, 6:00pm-8:00pm):
