Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Program- Lake Wilcox site

OThe Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Program (SNAP) is an innovative pilot program led by Toronto and Region Conservation in collaboration with regional, municipal and community partners. This program also seeks partnership and support from a range of green businesses, community groups and academic organizations.  The Lake Wilcox site was developed together with the Region of York, Town of Richmond Hill and numerous Lake Wilcox neighbourhood residents and groups.

The Plan focuses on “Embracing Nature in the Community”; it identifies the needs of the neighbourhood, sets targets for improvement and suggests local community actions to reach the targets.  The 3 primary action areas are residential eco-landscaping, visitor stewardship, and green renovations and energy.  The aim is to improve water quality in Lake Wilcox, reduce storm runoff, enhance natural areas and reduce water use.
