Between the Bridges Housing Lab - Winter - Spring 2019
Between the Bridges is developing a vision and action plan to “Break the Cycle” that has negatively impacted too many residents of Dartmouth North, for too many generations. The neighbourhoods involved, with a population of approximately 12,000 residents, are located between the MacDonald and MacKay bridges in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and a part of Halifax Regional Municipality. - From the Inspiring Communities Website - https://inspiringcommunities.ca/communities/dartmouth-north/about/
