Where Do We Grow From Here?
~ HRM Launches Alternatives for Growth ~

Neighbourhood Villages - One of the Growth Alternatives


The Regional Planning Committee will be meeting on Wednesday, June 30, 2004 at the Halifax Ferry Terminal, 2nd Floor at 2:00 pm. Please note this will replace the July 7th, 2004 meeting.

Have you wondered what our region might look 25 years from now?

On Saturday, May 15th the Regional Planning Committee officially launched a series of alternative concepts for the future growth of Halifax Regional Municipality. A panel of local experts were on hand to provide their views and insight. A question and answer period followed the panelist’s remarks. Everyone was invited to attend Community Open Houses at the locations listed below and to discuss the alternative future directions for HRM.

Ongoing documentation of the Alternatives for Growth process, Regional Planning's goals and objectives and the public comments from Open Houses are available online.
