Can Ajax Spearhead the Greening of the GTA?

999677_the_sidewalkThe municipality of Ajax has already taken initiatives to keep Durham Region and the Greater Toronto Area green.  They have expanded water pollution control along Duffins Creek Marsh.  They are working on waste water management and water conservation.

These are all great initiatives. 

When I reviewed the Greening Greater Toronto report, I noticed one aspect of the greening that seems to go against some of the decisions that the Ajax council has made recently, like approving another 1500 homes for north Ajax.

The Greening Report looks at “sustainable land use and expanded green space.”  This group is hoping to reduce the dependence on personal vehicles and keep the trees.

I am curious to see how the new home developments that are sprouting up all over the Durham Region are going to keep Durham green.
