Published January 14, 2022 at 11:31 am

The City of Pickering has launched a public survey to help shape a new set of Integrated Sustainable Design Standards for new development and re-development to allow residents and stakeholders to have their say.

The new standards will allow the City to review development through a lens that includes modern green best practices and technology. The standards will help City staff evaluate development proposals to ensure they meet the City’s sustainability objectives.

The survey is available at LetsTalkPickering.ca/standards until January 21 and residents are encouraged to visit the page to complete the survey so the City can learn what sustainable features in a home and community are considered important.

This work is funded through an $86,000 grant from The Atmospheric Fund and a $10,000 contribution from the Region of Durham. With this funding, the City retained Urban Equation Corp., a consulting firm with significant expertise in the field of sustainable community building, to lead the project.
