Action Alert: Help Stop Sprawl in York Region

Action Alert: Help Stop Sprawl in York Region

JUNE 14, 2022 – Join our partners Stop Sprawl York Region at a peaceful protest in opposition to York Region’s draft 2051 Official Plan.

The demonstration will take place Thursday, June 16th, 2022 from 10:00 – 11:00am ET at the York Region Administrative Centre, 17250 Yonge St., Newmarket.

Stop Sprawl York included the following statement in their media release:

Protesters are fed up with delegating to Council and being ignored. They come forward with public interest concerns around environmental protection, climate change mitigation, wasteful capital infrastructure plans, and bad community planning, and the majority of Council fail to incorporate these concerns into their decision-making, and simply act in the interest of landowners/developers, and lobbyist groups….Residents and some ENGOs see no other alternative than protesting.
