2018 Survey


I would like to continue working with the pace that the current council has taken on. The accomplishments we together as a group have been able to move forward have been excellent. I want to continue making Greater Sudbury a better place to live work and play for everyone

As the City is 100% shareholder of Sudbury Hydro I would like to support working with them to install charging stations for electric cars. The more charging station we have the more people may purchase these types of vehicles. The other is to solicit a bicycle sharing company that provides a pick up/drop off bicycle rental system across CGS. These are being used in many other municipalities and is working well. The more we encourage the use of other methods of transportation the less cars are on the road.
I believe the improvement that have been made in the last four years have been excellent. I think there is always room for improvements. Better us of technology would be one area, that could maximize community involvement. Encourage and promote the advisory panels to council with presentations of their roles, and whenever possible have an increased presence at large public event to share information and updates face to face with residents who attend these events.
We must ensure that our drinking water is protected as well as better understand how the watershed systems affect the city as a whole. Promote the update of our planning and construction policies to include a watershed analysis lens, as well as assess the use of salt on our roads during the winter months.
I would be happy to lead this conversation. Much must be done to controle the use of this type of plastic especially considering many of them are not recyclable. The provincial government is implimenting many changes to recyclable and I think this is a great opportunity to start the conversation to ensure these types of plastics are at the forefront.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide feedback and answer your questions. I look forward to the great work the City and it`s partners can do to improve the lives of the residents.
