Matt Alexander

"We can work as a community to ensure new development has a positive impact on our environment.

Secure Public Access to Ward 1’s Undeveloped Hilltops
Let’s be pro-active about setting land aside for neighbourhood use and create a plan to make our scenic hilltops accessible.

Ensure Responsible Shoreline Development
Adopt a Development Permit System to manage development of lakefront properties and direct new development to areas where environmental features won’t be impacted;

Reduce Run-off (and Landscaping Costs)
Install native-species rain gardens to reduce run-off into our stormwater system and reduce maintenance costs.

Work and Shop Closer to Home
Facilitate development of walkable, attractive public spaces to encourage sustainable transportation."
