Glenorchy Conservation Area – What to Expect

imageMost people fear urban sprawl, no one can safely say they desire living in a congested community. Yes, I know some of you are disagreeing with me and saying “but I live a busy life and a busy lifestyle suits me!” or “real estate prices are better in A BOOMING city!”. Sure, but most of you own a pet and like having a place to take your pup for a walk or a run. Most of you would like to know you can enjoy a conservation area while in the growing heart of a community where everyones busy life styles are intertwined with nature and a healthy average 5.9% real estate appreciation. Why not have the best of both worlds?

North Oakville can now call their 400 hectares of green space the Glenorchy Conservation Area, integrated into 3,100 hectares of undeveloped parcels of land, bounded by Highway 407 to the north, Ninth Line to the east, Dundas Street to the south, and Tremaine Road to the west.

imageThis will create a linked natural heritage system and conservation area. Conservation Halton has partnered with the Government of Ontario to create the Glenorchy Conservation Area, protecting 400 hectares (650 acres) of environmentally sensitive land in North Oakville, containing the Trafalgar Moraine and the Sixteen Mile Creek valley. This area is expected to accommodate approximately 50,000 people and around 25,000 jobs. The decision to preserve the 900 hectare natural heritage system within the larger area was ultimately upheld by the Ontario Municipal Board which turned down appeals.
