86 hectares of land in Purcells Cove is proposed for rezoning and development Rezoning Map. While some may think this is a good opportunity for development, please take a moment to reconsider… and if you agree, sign Our Petition.
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.
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]
We need your support! The application to rezone 48 – 50 Old Sambro Road from R-2P to R-3 was defeated by Halifax and West Community Council at its meeting on November 16, 2021. The developer has appealed that decision.
From an historic low in October to the current level of 20 cm over the top of the dam, Williams Lake is back!!
