Project: Simcoe County – The New Growth Frontier

Posted by | projects | No Comments

In this project we investigated plans for several very large-scale developments in the county to the north of the Greater Toronto Area found that developers, rather than municipal authorities, were driving the county’s growth pattern and infrastructure investments.

The report anticipated subsequent provincial actions to protect the Lake Simcoe watershed and ensure orderly development.

Commissioned by the Neptis Foundation and prepared with Leah Birnbaum and Lorenzo Nicolet.
