The PARA Green Committee and Councillor Mike Layton’s office are very excited to announce the official launch of the Green Plan for the Palmerston area neighbourhood. This plan was developed by and for the community as people organize around issues of climate change and environmental degradation and take action. 

PARA is thrilled to have a plan that is both specific to the neighbourhood and in sync with the City’s TransformTO climate action strategy. PARA’s Green Plan contains many ideas, identifying potential projects and areas for advocacy. There is ample opportunity for everyone to be involved, whether through individual and household actions, group community projects or participation in city-wide initiatives.  PARA welcomes community members to join the PARA Green Committee, and they continue to plan online activities.

To date, the PARA Green Committee has successfully obtained a grant to plant a pollinator garden at Harbord Collegiate with our partner, the Harbord Collegiate Eco-club.  It would have been a very busy summer, but sadly plans are now on hold until it is safe to reconnect again.

The Committee has been involved in the final design of Westbank park on the former Mirvish Village site, and the greening strategy for the Palmerston gates at the intersection of Palmerston and Bloor.

Many more issues need to be addressed, including making the neighbourhood a net zero greenhouse gas emissions area.  PARA welcomes your comments, your interest and energy as they endeavour to move forward on the many issues facing the neighbourhood and its resiliency for the future.
