PROPOSED TRAIL PLAN FOR BLUE MOUNTAIN - BIRCH COVE LAKES WILDERNESS AREA
Please Support Recreational Trails Funding!
On January 17, 2018, a proposal was put forth to HRM Council's Committee of the Whole that asked for $250,000 from HRM for the 2018-2019 fiscal year budget to fund a pilot project to refurbish or develop some recreational trails. If this pilot is successful, the ask is for $1M per year for the next five years for recreational trail development. The proposal is found here: https://www.halifax.ca/
HNWTA is much in favour of this addition to the HRM budget as it would allow us to improve upon our current recreational trails, and also help us in the future to develop new recreational nature trails in new areas. This would mean more recreational trails like Belcher's Marsh and Cabin Lake Trail for community members to enjoy all year round.
The proposal has been heard by Council, and has been placed on the ‘back burner’ for reconsideration at a future time. The only way to bring this to the forefront is to let our Councillors know that we strongly support the approval of this proposal. If our Councillors are aware of the importance we place on this budget addition, they will be encouraged to vote positively when a motion is made regarding the proposal.
If you support this proposal like we do, please contact your Councillor soon and let them know! They will be meeting on March WHAT and we would like this to be brought up as a topic of discussion.
