HRM to Recommend Province Take on Williams Lake Dam

Williams Lake Dam

HRM’s Environment and Sustainability Standing Committee (ESSC) addressed the much-anticipated staff report on the Williams Lake dam. The staff report fell flat in several areas, but the big take-away is the recommendation that Halifax Regional Council request the mayor to ask the province to assume responsibility for repairs or replacement of the Williams Lake dam.

‘We’re being passed around’

Saltwire: “It’s a leaky dam, but it’s more like a hot potato.

“And for many of the residents who live near Williams Lake in Spryfield, they just want governments to work together to get the problem solved.

““As a resident, we feel like we’re being passed around by these levels of government,” said resident Sanja Trussell.” [Photo: Tim Krochak]

UPDATE: Rezoning of 48-50 Old Sambro Road (Case #22890) defeated

HRM rezoning sign

Halifax & West Community Council last night rejected the motion to ‘upzone’ the properties at 48 & 50 Old Sambro Road from R2 to R3. This defeat prevents R3 zoning which would have allowed a three story apartment building with underground parking next to Governors Brook and Catamaran Ponds which flow into Colpitt Lake and on down to Williams Lake.
