Members of the public are invited to provide feedback about their experience with the provincial Greenbelt Plan and accompanying Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan (ORMCP) during a series of upcoming community consultation sessions or via an online survey.
A Session will be held on:
- Wednesday, April 16th from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Pickering Recreation Complex (1867 Valley Farm Rd., Pickering)
In 2015, the province is undertaking a mandatory 10-year review of its Greenbelt Plan, ORMCP and Niagara Escarpment Plan. In preparation, Durham Region has engaged a consultant to assist in conducting a consultation exercise intended to help influence the Province’s upcoming legislated review.
The comments received, via these outlets, will be used to develop a Regional submission that highlights the major themes, challenges and opportunities that emerged from the consultation process, with recommendations to address these findings. The final report will be forwarded to the Province to provide a Durham perspective about the 2015 Greenbelt Plan Review.
Residents who are unable to attend a consultation session are invited to participate in an online survey, which can be found at www.durham.ca/greenbeltreview.

Please be advised that the street formerly known as Brock/Scugog Townline Road has been renamed Brock Concession Road 1. This means that both sides of the road (north side – Township of Brock and south side – Township of Scugog) now have the same name. It is believed that aligning the road name is in the best interest of the residents on the road and promotes public safety by ensuring a timely response to any emergency that may occur on that road. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact Fire Chief Richard Miller at 905-985-2384 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has made a decision to finalize a guideline entitled, "Excess Soil Management - A Guide for Best Management Practices". Township staff will consider concepts within the Guide to ensure that Scugog is meeting best management practices. For a copy of the guide, please click on the link below.

The Township of Scugog would like to take this time to remind you that it is your responsibility to make sure that you are able to care for your own needs and the needs of your family for 72 hours.
This means that if there is a weather emergency, and the power goes out, it is your responsibility to have the food and other essentials on hand to take care of yourself for 72 hours. Are you prepared?
Do you have a family emergency kit?
Have you made an emergency plan?
In the event of an emergency, please be sure to check on your neighbours and family members to ensure their safety.
