Whoa!!

Well, not a bad start to the Society! We had over 100 citizens meet this morning, all of whom were interested in making Halifax a better city to live in.

I think that we raised a few eyebrows, stirred up a few questions and garnered a lot of support.

 One of the key questions heard is “What does liveable mean?” Good question, I am sure we all have a different view on what livable means. And is a question that deserves to be answered.

 I was sent this resource which is a view of the most liveable city in America. Perhaps it can help us understand what the term “livable” really means…

  1. excellent start to citizens for Halifax! this article is interesting in pointing to transportation and other issues.

    CFH also comes at a great time with other issues such as urban design being debated and re-thought.

  2. I love the idea of modelling a liveable city after Portland Oregon. We have the potential in Halifax to generate more vibrant economic growth while maintaining a green consciousness (bike lanes as one eg.) as in Portland. As well we would want to preserve and expand our rich music and arts cultural scene which brings so many tourists here and is one of the important attractors for cultural creatives.
