WSP Canada Porters Lake Infrastructure Improvement Plan

The Porters Lake Business Association has been working in collaboration with WSP Canada since the Fall of 2020 in order to improve the critical transportation infrastructure in the Porters Lake area, including the Business Improvement District (BID) along Highway 7, from Alps Road to Stella Drive. This plan will help guide future development in Porters Lake and promote economic growth and opportunities.

The next steps are to present the plan to the Halifax Regional Municipality's Transportation Standing Committee.

Pole Banner Beautification Project

In September 2020, PLBA launched the pole banner beautification project

in order to help beautify the Porters Lake business community.

Thanks to this project, you can now find pole banners up year-round

along Highway 7 between Alps Rd. and Stella Dr.  

The schedule for the pole banners goes as follows: 

October - November: Remembrance Day Banners

December - February: Winter Holiday Banners

March - September: Support Local/Business Banners

Please Note: This schedule may be subject to change. 


Remembrance Day Banners

After two years, we are updating our Highway banners. We are in the process of designing new banners for the fall of 2022 and are offering new sponsorship opportunities. 

Sponsorship is open to both PLBA member businesses and the general public. If you or someone you know is interested, sponsorship cost is $350.00 for a Remembrance Day banner. To sponsor a banner, please contact us.

We are also requesting new photo submissions for the veteran features on the new banners.

The requirements for having a family member featured on a banner are as followed: 

  • Honouree must be a veteran 

  • Photo of veteran must be a close-up photo

     (portrait style preferred)

  • Preference will be given to local veterans within the Porters Lake area
