Thank you from the Developer
This process was inspiring for not only me but my entire team. The public engagement process has brought forth so many ideas for this development that I cannot imagine building something of this importance without public engagement.
Throughout the process we have forged partnerships to help us with this development but the most important partnership has been with the public.
People from all over our community brought their ideas and experiences and shared them with us to make this the best development possible for this site. It was encouraging to see community members who gave their valuable time to attend our engagement sessions.
Change is always hard for people. It is difficult to always know how to best move forward and now I know that public engagement was the right step to take.
This development is now better and stronger with the help of the public. Although, this is a private development, it is for the publics’ future, it is for the people of Halifax to use daily. I believe now we are better equipped with the right tools and partners to start taking the next steps to make this project a reality.
