Friday, July 11, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – Residents are invited to attend a public consultation session on Wednesday, July 23, to discuss a proposed fenced-in off-leash dog park to replace the off-leash area at Africville Park.
Regional Council voted on June 24 to close the off-leash area at Africville Park as soon as a new site is identified and opened. Until that happens, the current site at Africville Park will remain an off-leash area. Councillors have asked that the new park be in place by the end of 2014.
Council has identified land to the right of the parking lot at Africville Park, near the MacKay Bridge, as a possible alternative site for the new off-leash park.
Residents can share their thoughts on the proposed new site at the public consultation session, which will be held from 7-9 p.m. on July 23, at the Halifax Forum, 6209 Almon St., in the Maritime Hall building.
For residents who are unable to attend, feedback can be sent to Holly Richardson in Real Estate and Land Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
