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.


Update - June, 2019

We have begun our final round of public engagement for the Halifax common Master Plan. Thanks to everyone who attended the June 17 meeting at the Citadel High School. Your input was very much appreciated. Miss the meeting? Have a look at the Draft Master Plan boards here and take the survey below.

Couldn't make the June 17 public engagement session?

Please take the opportunity to provide feedback on the key directions and concept plans through our online survey running until July 16.


Past Engagement Workshops

The final meeting in the public engagement series was held on Monday, June 17, 2019 where we shared components of the Draft Master Plan that included key directions and concept plans for the municipal open spaces as well as the Common-wide strategies for connections, character and recreation experiences.

The third meeting in the public engagement series was held on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, which included a presentation on the key engagement findings from the work to date, along with the overarching themes and values that have emerged. This was followed by an open house of workshops inviting attendees to explore the possibilities and big decisions under consideration.

Our first round of public engagement sessions were held on Jan. 31, 2018 and Dec. 11, 2017. Thanks to everyone who came out to share what you value most about the Halifax Common.

Feedback from the December, January, and April engagement sessions has been captured and summarized in our What We Heard documents in the document library.
