Rally Against Forced Urban Boundary Expansions on Natural Spaces and Farmland
April 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Members of the Nith Valley EcoBoosters are involved in planning a rally event against forced urban boundary expansion and the development of farmland and natural spaces. The Waterloo Regional Official Plan (along with other Official Plans such as Wellington County’s Official Plan) are currently awaiting approval from Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Steve Clark. A decision could come at any time potentially forcing thousands of acres of unwanted sprawl similar to what the province has done to the Halton Region and City of Hamilton Official Plans.t
Waterloo MPP Catherine Fife is already confirmed as a speaker and we hope that Waterloo Mayor Dorothy McCabe will be able to join us as well. We want to draw attention to the new report from the Alliance for a Livable Ontario (ALO) showing that municipalities in the Greater Golden Horseshoe already have sufficient lands for twice as many housing units as the province requires under Bill 23 and that Greenbelt land removals as well as forced urban boundary expansions are totally unnecessary.
