Credit Valley Conservation and the Town of Halton Hills invite residents of Hungry Hollow – Delrex neighbourhood to learn more about an exciting new project, the Hungry Hollow Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan (SNAP). This action-oriented plan will help the community become more sustainable and resilient to the impacts of climate change.
“SNAP brings residents, groups and community leaders together to find solutions and take action on priority neighbourhood issues,” Andrew Kett, Senior Manager of Education and Outreach at CVC. “We’re proud to partner with the Town of Halton Hills and connect with the local community to find action-oriented solutions to make this neighbourhood greener and healthier.”
About Hungry Hollow SNAP
The Delrex neighbourhood in Georgetown is a mature, urban area with potential restoration and retrofit opportunities. The neighbourhood connects with Hungry Hollow – a largely undeveloped, publicly-owned ravine valued for its natural beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities. Silver Creek flows through the deep valley, eventually connecting to the Credit River. Hungry Hollow contains important forest habitat and cold-water streams that support a high diversity of wildlife. There are 16 species-at-risk, 10 provincially rare species, 63 regionally rare species, and 97 locally rare species in the Hungry Hollow area.
Credit Valley Conservation and the Town of Halton Hills are seeking community input on how to make this area more sustainable and resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Join us for two upcoming opportunities to share your vision for Hungry Hollow and the Delrex neighbourhood.
