Town hosting Community Energy Plan meeting on January 23

Mon, 14 Jan 2019

Public invited to meet the task force and join the discussion

The Town of Oakville and Sheridan College have come together to help the community develop a Community Energy Plan (CEP) for Oakville. Residents are invited to learn more about the plan and its development at the inaugural meeting of the CEP task force on Wednesday, January 23, 9 a.m. to noon at Town Hall.

The CEP Task Force is comprised of a team of community leaders from local businesses, government, utilities, schools and community groups that will share their expertise along with feedback from the community to help shape the vision, goals, targets and actions of the plan. Ward 4 Town Councillor, Peter Longo was appointed to represent the town on the task force.

Once developed, Oakville’s CEP will act as a guide to help the town, its residents, and businesses implement best practices to reduce energy costs, increase energy security, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and enhance resiliency to climate change. The plan will help us look at how we can better use energy in our homes and businesses, and through our transportation choices and land use decisions.

A key component to developing the plan is hearing from residents. Attend the CEP Task Force meeting to learn more or visit the Community Energy Plan page for upcoming meeting dates and other opportunities to get involved and provide your input.
