A healthy environment is critical to Simcoe County’s future. Farmland, water and natural heritage are key components of a healthy environment and thriving economy, and need better protection.
Back in October we sat down with David Crombie to talk about his experience as Chair of the Advisory Panel for the Co-ordinated Land Use Review. Here are some shorter clips from that talk interview:
David Crombie explains the major concerns he heard from more than 20,000 people while Chairing the Co-ordinated Land Use Review Advisory Panel. (2:29 minutes long.)
David Crombie talks about water, about why many who are 'in the know' are increasingly concerned about our water, and about the productive value of nature in this segment. (3:48 minutes long.)
The Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition is calling for the expansion of the Greenbelt in Simcoe County, so that current and future generations can benefit from clean water, local food and green spaces.
What is the Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition (SCGC)?
The Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition is the result of 30 community groups from across Simcoe and the province that have agreed in principle that the Greenbelt needs to expand into Simcoe County to ensure our water, natural heritage and farmland is protected.
With representation from farmers, naturalists, environmentalists and ratepayer organizations, the Simcoe County Greenbelt Coalition is a balanced voice that believes that the Greenbelt would create a stronger Simcoe County.
