Bayne Street Land Use Study a huge opportunity

Today Councillor Watts spoke in Council about the Bayne Street Land Use Plan, also referred to as the Bayne Street “Master Plan”.  I first read this report two years ago and think it is a hugely exciting idea, on par with Cogswell or Shannon Park being redeveloped.  The idea of removing a bunch of spaghetti highways, making traffic flow more smoothly as a result, and restoring residents to the hill above Africville Church really sings to me.

Here is a link to the 2002 Brownfield study that lead to the plan.

And here is a copy of the report for the Bayne Street area, as the document is not on the HRM website at this time:
