Dear editor, As a first year undergraduate student at the University of Waterloo in urban planning, I feel that it is necessary to respond to Lisa Tallyn's article "Fairness fight taken to Queen's Park (March 9). With Halton expecting 312,000 more people in the next 25 years, it is imperative that the provincial government provides adequate funds to be able to support this growth. If the Places to Grow plan does result in growth to Georgetown with little money from the government, the outcome will be a catastrophe of quickly developed houses (presumably resembling Georgetown South). Halton needs to initiate a plan for sustainable growth in order to accommodate new immigrants and residents to Georgetown. With more money, plans can properly be put in place, meeting the desired accommodations including proper water supply, landuse, appeal, and the like. Halton needs as much money as is available from the provincial government if the Places to Grow plan is intended to efficiently accommodate the surge of growth expected before 2031. Without sufficient funds, growth will be sloppy and likely deter growth from happening, rather than attracting new residents.
