 Green Belt ....What is it .....a panel discussion. 

If you are wondering what the Halifax Green Network Plan is or how a Greenbelt could lower your taxes and boost the economy, or maybe you're wondering which parks and corridors would be included in the Greenbelt. If the answer is yes to any of the above please think about attending a panel discussion hosted by The Ecology Action Centre to learn about all this and more!

When: January 18th, 2017, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Where: Room 1020, Kenneth C. Rowe Building, Dalhousie University. 6100 University Avenue, Halifax. 

The evening will begin with a brief presentation by each of the panellists on creating a Greenbelt for a livable city, and then audience members will have a chance to pose questions on urban growth boundaries, economic benefits of the greenbelt, regional park creation, rural economic viability, urban and suburban busines districts, natural heritage corridors, and many other topics!

Please note one of the panelists is our own Park to Park Board member Karen Beazley.
