Get in the game and have your say about what a stadium for HRM would look like. Come out to a series of four public sessions beginning next week. On October 12th at the Halifax Forum tell us about your VISION for a stadium, and on October 13th at Farrell Hall in Dartmouth weigh in on the LOCATION and DESIGN.
Then at two more sessions – November 16th at the Forum we’ll talk about HIGHLIGHTS from the first two sessions, and December 7th at Farrell Hall we’ll present a Draft DESIGN.
All sessions run from 7 – 9 p.m. All are welcome.

The sessions are part of the Phase 2 Stadium Analysis approved by Halifax Regional Council to provide a detailed vision, preliminary design, possible site, and capital cost in order to ultimately decide whether or not to proceed to develop a stadium for the municipality.
Phase 2 of the Stadium Analysis is underway. A Request For Proposals (RFP) Tender for Phase 2 Consulting was issued following Council approval. Phase 2 is also seeking applications for an Expression of Interest (EOI) requesting Identification of Available and Suitable Private Lands Proposed Halifax Stadium Project Phase 2. For more information please visit EOI – Available and Suitable Private Lands under E11-076. Applications can be submitted until September 15, 2011.
The final report for Phase 1 of the Stadium Analysis Project was presented to Regional Council on August 2nd and further discussed on August 9th. Following debate, the motion was passed on August 9, 2011 by Regional Council to go forward with Phase 2 Stadium Analysis: Site Selection and Preliminary Design.
