The Task Force's next steps are to raise public awareness and education on the effects of gridlock on the economy and provide input into plans to address the issue.

Councillor Iannicca expressed concern with respect to provincial intensification targets that increase densities in communities without adequate infrastructure.

Councillor Crombie inquired how the Western GTA-MOVE Task Force could assist the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga, and other western GTA municipalities, in ensuring they receive their fair share of funding for a regionally integrated transit system.

Jeanette Chau noted that the provincial budget, if approved, includes funds for Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area transit projects, over a ten year period, which should enable the majority of planned projects to commence in the next few years.

Dr. Rosella stated that as of 2012, one in 10 individuals in the Region of Peel were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and that number is expected to grow to one in six by 2027, with much of the increase being due to the aging of the population.

Councillor Mullin highlighted the need to ensure messaging to the public is easy to understand with respect to promoting healthy lifestyles through exercise and diet.

In response to a question from Councillor Sprovieri, Dr. Rosella stated that it is very difficult to change behaviour and that environments need to be created that are supportive of behavioural changes towards healthy living.

In response to a question from Councillor Fennell, Dr. Rosella advised that evidence indicates a correlation between diabetes and access to and affordability of fresh, whole foods.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works and Brian Van Opstal, Technical Principal, Waste Management, outlined the need for an Infrastructure Development Plan which builds on the assessment of existing infrastructures, identifies needs and recommends how required infrastructure can be developed in a coordinated and efficient way. The Plan will include recommendations regarding size, type, location and ownership of Blue Box material recycling capacity, organics processing capacity; and, waste material transfer capacity.

Brian Van Opstal provided an overview of the options considered and reviewed the analysis of costs and risks. Staff will continue to refine the Infrastructure Development Plan and investigate technologies, sites and approaches to implement anaerobic digestion for green bin organics, blue box material processing and leaf and yard waste transfer.

In response to a question from Councillor Sanderson, Brian Van Opstal advised that anaerobic digestion manages all green bin organics as a liquid which allows the digestible portion to be separated from the plastic shell to produce clean and homogeneous material.

Councillor Paterak requested that staff monitor the amount of yard waste placed in organics bins and ensure a strong communication strategy is developed to ensure residents are aware that yard waste must be collected separate from organic waste, as only organic waste is suitable for anaerobic digestion.
