Since it is summer time, the councillors are on vacation, and there are no developments in the news i thought we could start thinking of what we would do with some big parcels of land in HRM (specifically in Hfx, Bfd or Dart.).
Shannon Park is a former military housing community in Dartmouth adjacent to the MacKay Bridge, Burnside, Halifax Harbour, BIO, and Tuft's Cove. It was built in 1950 and was abandoned officially in 2004. The site includes small apartment buildings, a church, a wharf/jetty, a school, and a park (part of the school).

-near Burnside, MacKay Bridge, Hwy 111 and retail on Windmill Road.
-has a shoreline on the Harbour.
-Adjacent to BIO.
-Adjacent to low-income, crime-ridden neighbourhoods.
-Next to Tuft's Cove Power Generating Station.
-Loud neighbourhood (MacKay Bridge, Circ, railroad, ect).
So what do you think Shannon Park should be redeveloped into and when should this happen?
