Donna Todd’s Response to Sustainability Questionnaire

SC: What does sustainability mean for you, with respect to Cobourg?
SC: How would you ensure that it is provided adequate funding in the budget allocations
SC: What is the first thing that should be done and what priority among your other responsibilities would you give it?

SC: Would you be prepared to sign a pledge to support active transportation within Cobourg?

DT: The best support  I can give as your elected municipal representative is to listen and act on the recommendations of engaged citizens such as yours .

Sustainability means protecting the existing natural resources and reclaiming that which we have lost.  I believe we must focus on efforts that will guarantee the next generation can actively live in Cobourg in a clean non-toxic environment.

As Deputy Mayor I would focus on expanding our trails and bike paths.  I would look for better efficiencies in the use of energy consumption.  I would promote solar panels, LED lighting and naturalization of our waterfront.

Through budget deliberations I have supported bike lanes, initiated walk Cobourg program and been active the formation of an active transportation committee.
