FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, Monday, January 8, 2018
Eleven groups from throughout Halifax have come together to call for a new strategy to re-write the plans for suburban and rural areas. The groups will propose an approach that will allow communities a say in their future now, not in decades.
Communities throughout the Halifax region have big ideas, but for many, their official plans have not been updated in decades. Only with updated plans can transit and development investment work together to create great main streets, places that make life convenient and affordable, and that form the centre of local pride.
The participating groups are the following:
- Affordable Housing Association of Nova Scotia
- CARP Nova Scotia
- Halifax Cycling Coalition
- It’s More Than Buses
- Main Street Dartmouth Community Improvement District
- Sackville Business Commission
- Spryfield Community Association
- Spryfield Business Commission
- United Way
- Walk n’ Roll Halifax
Where: Station Six, 247 Herring Cove Rd.
When: 10:00 a.m, January 9, 2017.
Why: To announce a common position statement on how and why Halifax should accelerate planning for rural and suburban communities.
