The Green Infrastructure Management Strategy aims to include green infrastructure in the City’s municipal toolkit. The strategy provides a road map for the City on how and where green infrastructure can be better integrated into future decision making with regards to municipal operations, capital projects, area plans, and development design practices.
The strategy is a corporate, inter-departmental and municipal wide initiative. The actions outlined in this strategy support stakeholders and the City, its various departments, the development & business community and its tax payers in achieving objectives of the Official Community Plan (OCP), and Environmental Management Strategy (EMS). It will require an adaptive and incremental approach at various scales working with buildings, sites, streets, neighbourhoods and a municipal wide level. Different areas will require appropriate solutions and this may change with time depending on densities, land uses, available resources, and community values.
