A Well Planned Community to Protect Our Natural Heritage and Environment

The beauty of the landscape in Halton is a key attraction in our region.  From the lake in the south to the Escarpment running through our community, Halton Region’s Official Plan establishes policies to ensure we protect this natural heritage for generations to come.   The success of our waste diversion programs has extended the life of Halton’s landfill to 2044, and therefore saved Halton residents money, since a new landfill would cost close to $1 billion dollars.  High participation rates in our waste diversion programs makes our landfill more sustainable which is good for the environment and good for taxpayers.  Join me on a walk at Kelso Conservation Area in Milton as I reflect on the importance of planning and sustainability to support and preserve vibrant communities and the natural environment.
