Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), in partnership with City of Brampton and Region of Peel are currently working with local residents and businesses to implement the County Court SNAP — a plan to build a sense of community, make the neighbourhood more environmentally friendly and prepare it for the impacts of climate change.
About the County Court SNAP Community
Located in Brampton’s south end, the County Court neighbourhood is home to about 5,800 people of diverse backgrounds and cultures.
The boundary is north of Hwy 407, east of Hurontario Street, west of Kennedy Road south of the Etobicoke Creek. It includes many homes, large parks, two golf courses, businesses, service retailers and a Provincial County Court house.
A beautiful trail extends along the Etobicoke Creek valley near the Peel Village Golf Course and Brampton Golf Club.
About the Plan
The County Court SNAP is a comprehensive environmental improvement plan that integrates local community interests and ideas for neighbourhood transformation. Strategic projects include:
- Renewal of County Court Park to better suit local recreation needs and integrate environmental education features and community gathering space.
- Retrofit of the Upper Nine stormwater management pond to address water quality and volume objectives and serve as a community amenity and natural area destination.
- Projects for greener streetscapes including bioretention within boulevards to provide stormwater filtration and other benefits, as well as establishment of a healthy urban forest.
- A rainwater storage system for irrigation of nearby golf courses.
- Habitat restoration along the Creek valley and in the golf courses.
- A template for green parking lot design at the Court House.
- Active promotion of green home renovation and landscapes to address residential energy and water conservation.
