Centre Plan Update – April 2019

Thanks for your input and ongoing support for the Centre Plan.

Centre Plan Package A was presented to the Community Design Advisory Committee (CDAC) agenda on April 10 & 17, 2019. Now committee will take opportunity to review the planning documents, ask questions and make their recommendations over the coming weeks. The plan will also be reviewed by a number of other advisory and standing committees of Council, as well as the Harbour East- Marine Drive Community Council & the Halifax and West Community Council. Centre Plan Package A will then be presented to Regional Council for its consideration and formal decision.

As of May 4, 2018, the public consultation period for Package A of the draft Centre Plan has closed. Thank you to the hundreds of individuals that provided their feedback on these important documents. In the coming months, the Centre Plan Team will be reviewing the hundreds of submissions received through the engagement process, and using this feedback to inform changes to the draft document. We will be returning regularly to the Community Design Advisory Group over the course of the coming months to seek their input and provide updates as we work towards a revised version of the plan.
