Transcript - Case 21875 - Virtual Public Meeting - Development of Former NS Home for Coloured Children
A virtual public meeting was held on Wednesday, October 21. This is a recording of that online presentation.
Background: Akoma Holdings Inc. wishes to develop the former Nova Scotia Home for Coloured Children (NSHCC) property located along Highway 7 in Westphal to enable a mix of housing, economic and recreational opportunities for the community. Akoma Holding’s immediate focus is renovating the former NSHCC at 18 Wilfred Jackson Way to include a seniors gym, café, salon focused on clients of African descent, and offices, and enabling a seniors housing project adjacent to the former Home. The current zoning of the property does not allow for the proposed uses, so Akoma Holdings is going through a planning process to change the policies and zoning applicable to the NSHCC site.
