On behalf of the Municipality of the District of West Hants, and in partnership with CBCL Ltd., this plan comprehensively reviews community values and the West Hants parks and open space inventory to identify the best possible park and open space network to meet the needs of citizens for the next 10 years.
Extensive public engagement was performed to understand the valuable qualities and characteristics citizens have for their parks and open space. These values were translated into a decision-making framework that can be used by officials when determining the suitability of land for their parks and open space network.
Each Municipal parcel was visited to understand the quality of currently-owned lands for parks and open space. A possible network is presented in the Plan, as well as concept design and cost estimates for the Top 5 prioritized parks.
