Managed Growth

I support growth in our community – it pays for improved services for residents and businesses. But we must grow with a view to protecting what we value as a community – small town culture, quiet neighbourhoods, a walkable and cycle able community, waterfront, green space, trees and wildlife. I have strongly advocated for higher development property standards, tree preservation, phasing, so that entire tracts are land are not clear cut and decimated for years at a stretch, and limits on the operating hours of heavy equipment.
