PLATFORM - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Balance the growth needs of our Town with the natural resources and ecosystems upon which our economy is based, particularly tourism.
Finalize the Official Plan, complete secondary plans and develop strong and clear zoning by-laws to implement our OP objectives, including the use of contextual zoning (eg reduce max. height allowed, increase min. setbacks, reduce built lot coverage).
Ensure that all plans are complementary eg OP, secondary plans, transportation plans, parks and recreation plans, etc.
Plan for variable densities across our urban areas in consideration of our heritage and environment.
Consider Low Impact Development (LID) or green infrastructure for new development areas eg Glendale
