And I quote from the HRM Website:
"There is an impression that the Common cannot be used for commercial use. That is not the case. The Common has a history of pay for commercial events including horse racing, sporting events, concerts, circuses and fairs. To clarify this ambiguity, the Halifax City Charter was changed in 1992 and, in 1994, a Commons Policy was adopted which clearly allowed for commercial and special events as long as they were approved by council and met the goals, objectives and policies of the 1994 Halifax Common Plan."
So to everyone complaining about the Commons being used for concerts, zip it!!
