Toronto and Region Conservation, along with the Town of Caledon and Region of Peel, is working closely with neighbourhood residents and businesses to develop the Caledon SNAP project: an on-the-ground demonstration of the town’s Community Climate Change Action Plan.
About the Caledon SNAP Community
The Caledon SNAP is located in a mature neighbourhood in Bolton, Caledon’s major urban centre, within the Humber River watershed.
Situated in west Bolton, the neighbourhood is west of the historic core and comprises mostly residential properties, with pockets of commercial and institutional development.
The neighbourhood is also includes parks, schools, green spaces and trails, and is transversed by Jaffrey’s Creek, a tributary of the Humber River.
The local demographic is a mix of young to middle-aged families and older couples, all ranging in cultural diversity.
About the Plan
This project is one of six SNAPs happening across the GTA, and will focus on working with the community to achieve measurable environmental and neighbourhood improvement.
Caledon SNAP will address critical municipal priorities, neighbourhood-specific issues and a variety of watershed and regional objectives across a range of theme areas that include:
- Long-standing drainage and erosion issues in Jaffrey’s Creek and the surrounding catchment.
- Improved water balance and Low Impact Development (LID).
- Watershed regeneration.
- Regional urban forest and public health priorities.
- Energy consumption hot spots.
- Increased active transportation.
