The MDCA is hosting a meeting at the Mount Dennis Library at 6:30 on April 3rd to “showcase our progress toward becoming a sustainable neighbourhood”. The MDCA is striving to make Mount Dennis an Eco-Neighbourhood.
A City of Toronto Community Energy Planner will review the work underway to quantify energy use in Mount Dennis. This will lead to an action plan to improve energy efficiency in both existing homes and future developments. The goal is to become carbon neutral as Toronto’s first Net Zero community.
Metrolinx will provide an update on their plan for an alternative to the proposed gas power plant proposed to provide emergency power for the Eglinton Crosstown line. Information will also be available about ways the Eglinton Crosstown supports greater sustainability.
The Toronto Region Conservation Authority will review its Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan (SNAP) program, recently recognized as one of the top 100 programs worldwide! MDCA is working to develop a partnership strategy that will engage our community in planning and addressing climate change, while connecting us to jobs in the green economy.
Our elected representatives will provide the latest news on how governments at the city, provincial and federal levels are supporting our efforts.
