A public information meeting was held on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Saint Josephs Alexander McKay Elementary School Gymnasium, 5389 Russel Street, Halifax.
On May 29, 2017 the application was before the Halifax Peninsula Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) that recommended that the application be rejected because the concept as presented was not acceptable and that the applicant explore an alternative design. The applicant has revised the proposal based on comments received from PAC.
A public hearing was held on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at Halifax City Hall (Halifax Hall), 2nd Floor, 1841 Argyle Street, Halifax, NS. A copy of the staff report may be obtained by calling HRM Planning and Development at 902-490-4472. Alternatively, the staff report is available on-line.
After the public hearing closed Halifax and West Community Council directed staff to consult with the developers to amend the proposed development agreement for Case 20417 to limit the height of the proposed building so that it does not exceed the roofline of St. Patrick’s Church, which is an abutting Municipal Heritage Building, and return with a supplementary staff report outlining the terms of any amended development agreement. Approved minutes of the public hearing are also available.
