Switch Darthmouth is moving forward!

Canvassing of the route has been complete and we have a date set for this August 25th, 12-3pm. The 2km route will run from Alderney Drive and Portland Street through to Prince Albert as far as Cottage Hill Drive. The Planning & Design Centre is partnering with Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission to animate the route: bringing vendors, musicians, and recreation out to the street to celebrate getting around Dartmouth.
Want to get involved? 

A core group of volunteers meets every Wednesday630-730pm at the Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission on 163 Portland Street. We discuss promotions, sponsorship, community outreach, and logistics and always welcome new attendees.
If you have an organization, an idea for helping activating the route, or wish to volunteer please get in touch at 

Dream Sessions: Round 1


It’s only been a few days since our last Switch Open Street Sunday event and already the discussion about where to go next has been taking off. Wednesday June 12th the Planning and Design Centre, Stepping Up and a team of volunteers got together to dream big and envision what the exciting future of Switch could look like. The conversations were engaging and offered some excellent insight into the impact of Switch Open Street Sunday on the community and everyone involved.
But we’re not stopping there. On Wednesday June 19th a second Dream Session will be held to continue the discussion and grow the possibilities of this amazing event. We invite you to attend our second Dream Session, which will be taking place at the JBO Centre, 2103 Gottingen Street in Halifax at 6:30-8:30pm. There is no RSVP required and snacks will be provided.

Can’t wait to see you there!
