Is the new service dog park next to Centennial Pool in the wrong location? 


What’s wrong? Is the new service dog park next to Centennial Pool in the wrong location?

Who’s responsible? Peter Bigelow, HRM’s manager of real properties, 490-6047.

Remarks: We’ve received complaints about the new park---the adjoining six points intersection is a hazard for sighted people, never mind blind folks, and Cogswell and Rainnie Streets are crazy busy, noisy and such. That’s all wet, says Bigelow. The new park makes use of what was previously poorly maintained dead space, and was vetted and approved by the Persons With Disabilities Committee, members of which have service dogs. We’ll wait until the park is open later this summer before we give it a paws up or paws down.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
