Places to Grow Implementation Fund - 2014/15 Recipients

Places to Grow Implementation Fund Projects for 2014-15

In 2014-15, seven projects were supported through the Places to Grow Implementation Fund:

  • Engagement Tools: Engagement tools were developed to collect community input on the City of Pickering’s land use plans. The city engaged residents and stakeholders from commercial, industrial and institutional sectors through community roundtable discussions, a survey, an online engagement platform, and through social media (City of Pickering).
  • Complete Streets Catalogue: Understanding Complete Streets in the Greater Golden Horseshoe: A catalogue to help municipalities within the Greater Golden Horseshoe better plan for transportation infrastructure. The purpose of the catalogue was to provide examples of how various municipalities in the region implemented complete street designs supporting the objectives of the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe. It features projects from 19 municipalities that reflect the diversity of approaches being taken by municipalities across the region (Clean Air Partnership – Toronto Centre for Active Transportation).
  • Report on Smart Growth: A report that provides communication material about the Growth Plan, and the benefits of sustainable development (Environmental Defence).
  • Smart Growth Network Online Directory: An online directory of organizations and resources (Smart Growth Network)
  • Close to Home: A report that looks at the benefits of walkable, and transit-friendly neighbourhoods. This project builds on past work on housing affordability models (Pembina Institute).
