Goals:

To maintain the natural environment.

To create green linkage between the residential areas, the parks, public facilities, and the downtown core.

Action Items:

Implement and integrate a town-wide concept of green space and walkways. Lobby government, service groups, and Conservation Authority to support plan development.

Establish a Trail Committee that would develop an integrated municipality; linked paths, canal trails, and natural pathways. Ensure all systems are wheelchair/stroller accessible.

Develop a downtown theme and actions to green the downtown (e.g., Downtown Now!) using trees/flowers, shrubs, flower boxes etc.

There was an overwhelming consensus that would require developers to create useable green space within each development.

Develop/clean up the waterfront.

Promote and market existing natural habitats and venues such as: Scanlon Creek Conservation Area, Ducks Unlimited, Simcoe Forests, Kuzmich Park.

Develop a community Band Stand that will provide a focus for the following types of activities: music, art, theatre, health fair, craft shows, and child puppet theatre.

Create a community to promote the preservation of agricultural land.

Create partnerships with the Lake Simcoe Conseravtion Authority to protect river systems.
