Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Program- Bayview Glen

The Bayview Glen neighbourhood is located within the community of Thornhill in the City of Markham, York Region. Bound by Bayview Avenue, Steeles Avenue and the CN rail line to the north and east, the neighbourhood is home to a population of about 2,100. It’s a beautiful, mature neighbourhood of mostly detached homes , parks and parkettes, Bayview Glen Public School, places of worship and some commercial lands. A reach of the Upper East Don River flows through the neighbourhood, lined with a mix of natural areas and private residential lots.

The Bayview Glen Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Program (SNAP) has implemented a number of projects in parks, homes and streets to:

  • Improve stormwater quality and reduce erosion impacts
  • Keep the urban forest healthy, and improve the biodiversity of plants and animals native to this area
  • Conserve energy and encourage sustainable transportation modes to reduce carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Conserve drinking water to reduce pressure on the current water system and preserve this vital resource for the years to come
