Project Summary

We were part of a multi-disciplinary developing the GreenPrint Community Sustainability Plan, an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) for the Town of Markham. GreenPrint provides a framework of organization for the community to co-ordinate, prioritize and implement strategic goals and objectives. Our team led the Employment Lands Sustainability component of the project and used our knowledge of policies to promote green building; conservation strategies; alternative energy; waste management, air & GHG emissions management, indicators & monitoring, and stakeholder facilitation. Working with team lead, HB Lanarc, we developed indicators for the Plan and analyzed the relationship between GreenPrint and Markham’s economic development activities and employment land regulations.
