What YOU can do to support the Crosstown Connector

Want to see the Crosstown Connector become a reality? Here are three things the HCC asks YOU to do to show your support for the Agricola route:


1) Join us at the upcoming HRM public engagement sessions

Thurs, March 29, 7-9pm
Bloomfield Centre, 2786 Agricola St.
Tues, April 3, 7-9pm
Maritime Hall, Halifax Forum, 2901 Windsor St.


Click here to see all four proposed routes (Agricola, Connaught, Windsor, Gottingen).

2) Let Agricola businesses know you support the Crosstown Connector! Visit your favourite Agricola shop this week and remind them of the benefits the bike lane will bring! (And, for fun, get a coffee from Cafe Aroma Latino at Agricola and North because they have already publicly supported the project!)


3) Write or call your councillor (see list of councillor contacts below)

All councillors will have a vote on this so even if you live outside the downtown core, please let your councillor know that you support the proposed Agricola Crosstown Connector route because it goes the furthest to improve the connections between where people live, work and play and it already features urban characteristics that lend themselves to a bike-friendly and pedestrian-friendly corridor.
