Brampton is a Green City focused on creating more sustainable neighbourhoods to encourage a greener lifestyle for its residents, fight climate change, improve community health and well-being, and build a stronger local economy. One of the key programs in Brampton for greening existing neighbourhoods is the Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Program (SNAP).
SNAP is an innovative, collaborative model for sustainable urban renewal and climate action that focuses on the neighbourhood scale. Guided by a customized Action Plan for the selected neighbourhood, the program aligns municipal sustainability priorities with community needs, identifies integrated retrofit solutions, and fosters partnerships between public agencies, community organizations, businesses, and residents. As a result, SNAPs help deliver program efficiencies, empower residents, and showcase innovation.
Brampton currently has three SNAPs: County Court SNAP, Fletchers Creek SNAP, and Bramalea SNAP.
