For Immediate Release

Town of Caledon is Finalist for a 2012 Community Conservation Award

The Ontario Power Authority has chosen the Town of Caledon as a finalist for the 2012 Community Conservation Award.  The award recognizes Municipalities within Ontario for their energy saving achievements and for promoting a culture of conservation within their communities. The Town of Caledon was nominated for the Community Climate Change Action Plan (CCCAP) which was completed in partnership with the Caledon community.

 

The objective of the plan was to bring the community together and determine what can be done to help reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.  The CCCAP is progressive and wide reaching, covering transportation, green development, energy, schools, agriculture, community awareness, tree planting and naturalization, waste, local food and longer term actions.  The plan summarizes environmental programs and initiatives, bringing together actions, targets and responsibilities, to ensure effective implementation.  With the plan complete, the Town and community have begun to implement the recommended actions. 

Earlier this year the CCCAP received the Credit Valley Conservation Award of Distinction.

In its announcement, the Ontario Power Authority congratulated the Town on its energy conservation efforts and for inspiring others to do more.

 

A complete list of finalists can be found on the Ontario Power Authority website at:

Award winners will be announced at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Local Authority Services (LAS) Community Connection Symposium on December 6, 2012, in Toronto.
