Sustainable Cobourg was formed in the summer of 2008 to organize or participate in local environmental projects, educate and increase the public’s understanding of the environment and its importance, develop and offer programs promoting the protection and preservation of the environment, and conduct and disseminate research relating to the environment.
Current areas of concern include urban planning, energy conservation and renewable energy, water quality and protection, waste reduction, climate change, farmland protection, tranportation, personal health, developing a sustainable, local economy and enhancing the quality of life in Cobourg.
Sustainable Cobourg’s focus is primarily on the Town of Cobourg, but planning and growth issues in surrounding towns and rural areas (environs) that affect Cobourg are also within the scope of our vision.
Sustainable Cobourg is comprised of four committees:
Town Hall Committee • Bicycle Action Committee • Food Committee • Health Hazards Committee
