Our Council has worked to protect our Lakes and Rivers through mandatory vegetative buffers. We have made responsible changes to the solid waste bag limits while promoting recycling and green binning. We have also invested in active transportation infrastructure and public transit.
In Ward 7, we have had 3 community gardens develop (Garson, Falconbridge and Capreol) which promote growing our own food close to home. The Transit Master Plan is recommending more convenient transit options for all areas of our ward and I have also worked hard to ensure that Handi-Transit service is available to those individuals and organizations who need it in the Ward. On all new major road projects, the City has invested in wide paved shoulders with separating rumble strips, to ensure that cycling and walking along these corridors is safer. I have also worked with staff and community groups to keep our roadsides cleaner with Spring clean ups as well as keeping our trails and woods cleaner with City clean up and investigation.
