STOP SPRAWL DURHAM

It's true! We can build affordable housing options AND reduce our carbon footprint. The solution lies in creating complete communities.


Join us in demanding that Durham Regional leaders aim higher,  keep urban boundaries intact, and deliver sustainable neighbourhoods that benefit ALL of us!

 

WHAT'S AT STAKE?

Durham Region needs more homes and jobs -- but we don't need to pave over our farmland and natural heritage to make that happen!  

We're asking Durham Regional Councillors to choose Community Land Need Scenario #5: NO URBAN BOUNDARY EXPANSION.

We're asking for an Employment Land Need Scenario with NO NEW LAND. 


We're asking for a MINIMUM of 80 PEOPLE AND JOBS PER HECTARE in designated growth areas. 


We're asking for GENTLE DENSITY and MISSING MIDDLE housing.


We’re asking for leaders to CONSERVE our tax dollars and PROTECT vulnerable watersheds, wildlife habitat, and rare Class 1 soil. 

We want Durham Region to: ​

  1. DESIGN SAFE WALKABLE & BIKE-ABLE COMMUNITIES

  2. GROW INWARD FIRST AND USE CURRENT GROWTH AREAS EFFICIENTLY

  3. IMPROVE AND INCREASE TRANSIT OPTIONS

  4. BUILD AFFORDABLE HOUSING WHERE A CAR-FREE LIFESTYLE IS POSSIBLE

  5. PROTECT AND IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF OUR LAKES AND RIVERS

  6. PLANT NEW TREES AND PREVENT OUR CURRENT TREES FROM BEING CUT DOWN

  7. CONSERVE FARMLAND FOR FOOD AND CARBON SEQUESTRATION

  8. PROTECT US FROM FLOODING AND CLIMATE DISASTERS

  9. HELP ALL OF US PREPARE FOR A NET-ZERO WORLD
