Halifax Common Engagement Session

Halifax Common Master Plan

I’m on the Common!

The municipality is planning for the future direction of the Halifax Common.

As the city and region continue to grow, this dynamic public space will only take on more significance as a major park and recreation area serving local residents and all people in the Halifax region. The time has come again to take a comprehensive look at the future of the Common, through a master planning process that will define management policies, guidelines for open and green space, as well as concepts and action plans for physical renewal.

The outcomes will serve as a blueprint for future improvements, to guide the City in provision of open space areas, parks, recreation programs and facilities for the short and the long-term.

How might the Common best serve the needs of people who live in Halifax region?

The visioning and planning process for the Halifax Common will explore this question and more.

How can I get Involved?

Over the next few months there will be two more public engagement workshops and a second online survey to seek feedback on future directions and possibilities for the Halifax Common. You can also continue to stay involved through social media and via email.

The third meeting in the public engagement series will be held on Wednesday, April 25th at the Citadel High School, Spatz Theatre Atrium. There will be a presentation on the key engagement findings from the work to date, along with the overarching themes and values that have emerged. This will be followed by an open house of workshops inviting you to explore the possibilities and big decisions under consideration.
