Dartmouth Cove Master Plan
Waterfront Development led the development of the Dartmouth Cove Master Plan in 2012, with substantial community input. The final plan includes an internal street pattern and building parcel plan, pedestrian circulation system and public open spaces, general land and first floor land uses, building heights and setbacks, streetscape design and connections to adjacent areas, as well as site remediation and sea level rise implications.
The Dartmouth Cove Master Plan is a community driven plan and the time is right to begin implementation as downtown Dartmouth enjoys a resurgence of residential and commercial development. Dartmouth Cove can be an important driver of continued positive momentum in the downtown core.
