The 1994 Halifax Common Plan

In 1994, after public uproar over paving a section of the Common for the Grand Prix road races, Halifax City Council adopted the Halifax Common Plan.  This was based on a successful and meaningful public consultative process.

The Halifax Common Plan commits the City (now HRM) to the following:
Section 2.1:  The amount of public open space in the Halifax Common will not be decreased.
Section 3.1:  The amount of land owned by the City of Halifax will not be decreased.
Section 3.2:  The city will seek to increase the amount of land under city ownership through recapture of lands.
