Good Green Town Hall Revisited May 12; Official Plan Review - Phase 1 up
This is going out to our Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury group members, and other like-minded groups.
You are invited:
Good Green Town Hall Revisited, 7 p.m., Tandoori Tastes (96 Larch) – all welcome.
Panel discussion and Town Hall Q&A. Midway through this term of Council where is Greater Sudbury at when it comes to green issues? What progress has been made? What remains to be done? How can we get there? What does Council’s new strategic plan have to say?
Gerry Labelle will facilitate, and panelists are Matt Alexander (transportation), Arik Thiejmeijer (local food), Linda Heron (natural environment & water), Janet Gasparini (engagement & equity).
Please share the invitation among your networks. The poster is attached. The Facebook event is at: https://www.facebook.com/events/604448243063448/
Links to Council’s and the Planning Departments recently released strategic plans are below.
Also: a note to everyone that the draft for the Official Plan Review (Phase 1) is now up and open houses are coming up – more info below.
A lot of work went into recommendations for the Official Plan Review. Of note, Phase 1 includes: Growth and development; Housing; Local food production; Source water protection; Climate change adaptation; Refined lake water quality management (it does not include transportation or waste water management – these will come in Phase 2).
No doubt CLS folks and others be getting together to go over it. If you'd like to join us, let me know.
I would be interested in seeing any comments others submit.
