Lake Simcoe sprawl plan a.k.a Proposed Amd. 1 for Greater Golden Horseshoe
The “Proposed Amendment 1 to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe” is a plan for more sprawl development in the Lake Simcoe watershed. See SCO's letter submitted against the approval to the Ontario Gorwth Secretariat, Jan 31st.
Citizens simply will not buy the province’s line that this plan represents responsible growth. We know sprawl when we see it. We know this proposal will exacerbate highway congestion, strain water supplies, pollute surface and ground water, and encourage leapfrog development.
