Sustainable Oak Bay
Planning with the environment and affordability in mind
- Oak Bay has begun to secure our fair share of funding for infrastructure projects, and we must continue to seek out grants, and partnerships so that we can plan ahead, and make our increasingly critical long-term infrastructure projects affordable and sustainable.
- The new Official Community Plan provides the next Oak Bay Council the opportunity to continue it’s work with the community to update the outdated regulations to allow for modernization, and greening of our building bylaws. A sustainable Oak Bay includes rethinking old standards that did not anticipate climate change, wasting of energy, and how we could reduce our consumption, or recycle precious resources.
“I’ve walked or cycled through nearly every street in Oak Bay and I love the history and natural beauty of our community. But with that history comes aging pipes and crumbling roads that need to be fixed and maintained. I will work hard to preserve Oak Bay’s charm, keep it affordable for families and seniors, while ensuring we are leaders in building a sustainable, active, inclusive community.”
