Public input needed on development of Community Energy Plan

Wed, 27 Feb 2019

Take the online survey and have your say

Together with Sheridan College, the Town of Oakville is helping the community develop a Community Energy Plan (CEP) for Oakville. To help shape the vision and goals of the plan, the CEP task force is asking residents to share their thoughts on energy issues through a short online survey.

“To build a more livable Oakville we need to continue finding ways to be more energy efficient, reduce energy costs and be more resilient to climate change,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton. “Your input will help the CEP task force determine our priorities when it comes to energy so we can meet our community’s needs for years to come.”

The CEP Task Force is a team of community leaders from local businesses, government, utilities, schools, community groups and the general public that will share their expertise along with community feedback to help develop and implement the plan.

Councillor Peter Longo was appointed to represent the town on the Task Force.

“We want to know what matters most to residents and we want to hear from a broad cross-section of the town. Along with the online survey, we’ll be out in the community at many events this spring and summer getting as much input as possible to make this a true community energy plan, made for the community by the community,” Councillor Longo said.

Members of the public are also invited to attend the next CEP Task Force meeting, being held at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre on Friday, March 22 from 9 a.m. to noon.

The survey and more information is available on the Community Energy Plan page.
