In June 2019, you can help create an exciting tool to give everyone, in this beautiful rural part of Ottawa, personal choices for sustainability. If you live, work or spend time in West Carleton, you are a member of this community.
Please read about the Themes of Sustainability and register early so we can prepare.
After you look at the summary of Themes, you can read discussion papers on each of the Themes:
Transportation – Theme 1 Movement of goods and people
Energy – Theme 2 For buildings and activities e.g. transportation, manufacturing, agriculture
Design – Theme 3 Built environment including community design

In a community meeting, you will discuss one Theme of Sustainability. You can share your ideas on key issues for that Theme in West Carleton and possible projects to address them. Ideas for simple personal projects are very welcome. You may also suggest and discuss community projects.
The community discussions to create the West Carleton Sustainability Plan will take place on Tuesday 11 June at the West Carleton Community Complex, 5670 Carp Road, Kinburn, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. There will be a discussion group for each of the 10 Themes.
We look forward to meeting you!
Meanwhile, look at further information on the Themes that interest you.
