She provided an overview of one of the initiatives carried out in partnership between the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) and Adam Rosenberg, Manager of Client Relations, Zerofootprint, titled “Region of Peel Living City Carbon Calculator and Life is Better in Peel Campaign”.

Several Councillors expressed concern that the messaging should be simplified. They further suggested that messaging be adapted to generational audiences and specifically geared to children who can help change attitudes within households.

Councillor Iannicca placed the following motion and requested a recorded vote.

Moved by Councillor Iannicca,
Seconded by Councillor Palleschi;

Whereas the issues and concerns associated with the expansion areas in Caledon would otherwise be the sole responsibility of the local Council if not for Regional Government and Regional Official Plan Amendment (ROPA) 24;

And whereas, other area Councillors have expressed the serious concerns of their taxpayers at having to fund 95 per cent of all planning and legal fees for what is solely a local dispute in another jurisdiction;

Therefore be it resolved, that all costs of any court or municipal board proceeding associated with the expansion areas in Caledon and the Region’s Official Plan review be borne solely by the Town of Caledon taxpayers in defense of their position, and not the Region at large.

Councillor Whitehead cautioned that one of the problems with the provincially-set density target of 50 persons and jobs per hectare, is that if the Region of Peel is not able to accomplish the density target, the difference will need to be accommodated within the population densities. He noted that if the Town of Caledon is only able to achieve a density of 40 persons and jobs per hectare, the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga would be required to achieve density targets of 60 persons and jobs per hectare.

Councillor Morrison indicated her support for the amendment, noting that it gives the Region of Peel the opportunity to conduct an analysis to demonstrate how the density targets will be achieved. She further advised that the Countryside Mayors Alliance is working with the province to illustrate the impacts of the density targets and that provincial funding has been provided to undertake studies on the issue.

Councillor Mullin requested that Recommendation GC-85-2010, as amended, from the report of the General Committee meeting held on April 15, 2010 be voted upon separately and that a recorded vote be taken.
