Oshawa reducing greenhouse gases

The Oshawa community is invited to provide input on a Community Greenhouse Gas (G.H.G.) Reduction Plan that will help reduce total G.H.G. emissions from community sources.

The plan will identify specific actions and opportunities to reduce community G.H.G. emissions in Oshawa, while integrating existing initiatives and collaborating with neighbourhood and industry leaders. It will also seek to advance strategies that are consistent with Regional and Provincial environmental plans, and provide a positive example for the community.

Community members can review background information, ask questions and/or provide input in-person by attending a staffed community engagement table on Wednesday, March 20 between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. outside of the C-Wing Committee Room at City Hall (50 Centre St. S.); and at a public workshop on Thursday, March 21 between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. in City Hall’s C-Wing Committee Room. Participants can learn more about the plan and help identify top priorities, actions and opportunities as well as guiding principles.

Residents can go online to Connect Oshawa or see hard copies at Service Oshawa in City Hall to review the formal presentation, ask questions, provide feedback on the objectives and help identify actions and opportunities. Feedback will be received until 4 p.m. on Friday, April 5 and considered in the development of the draft Community G.H.G. Reduction Plan that will be presented to Council.
