Halifax Forum to be redeveloped in support of Halifax Forum Community Association
The Halifax Forum will be re-developed and expanded in support of the program needs from the Halifax Forum Community Association.
This proposed redevelopment will include two ice pads, concourse between ice pads, multipurpose space, parking, and outdoor recreation space – all while maintaining the Forum’s heritage characteristics.
The Halifax Forum Community Association was engaged to determine building program needs for a multipurpose space, to provide input into the approach for the market sounding, and to contribute to the overall site plan options for the Forum complex. Additional community consultation will occur in partnership with the Halifax Forum Community Association to finalize the site plan.
To support the redevelopment project and off-set project costs, municipal staff, in partnership with the Halifax Forum Community Association, will also explore the private development interests of the north portion of the site (corner of Young and Windsor Streets). Recommendations will be based on public feedback and will be presented to Regional Council for consideration.

*Note: this motion will be final when the meeting minutes are approved by Regional Council.
