The Cogswell Shake-Up – May 16th, 6:00 – 8:30pm
Cogswell Shake-Up - May 16th, 2013 -6:00 – 8:30pm – Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel – Halifax Ballroom.
FROM THE STRATEGIC URBAN PARTNERSHIP AND MAYOR SAVAGE
Located in the heart of the city, the Cogswell Interchange is the road system where the downtown and the North End meet. It’s the hub for public transit, the heart of the business district, and one of the primary routes in and out of the city.
But since its inception, the Interchange has been universally considered a missed opportunity. Given its prominent location, it could have (and should have) been so much more.
The great news is that the Mayor and HRM Council have begun exploring what the future of the Cogswell Interchange will look like. Both citizens and the city alike are taking an interest in one of HRM’s most important plots of land and pieces of infrastructure.
The Shakeup Before the Takedown
This is a big-deal project. Once it’s done, Halifax will never look the same.
That’s why the SUP, in partnership with the Mayor’s office, is hosting The Cogswell Shakeup.
The event will be an opportunity for Haligonians to come together and dream about what’s possible for the Cogswell area.
We have invited community organizations and groups to submit their “dreams” for what the Cogswell Interchange could do, be or mean for the city.
Come and share your ideas!
