Bayview Glen SNAP
The Sustainable Neighbourhood Retrofit Action Plans (SNAPs) are multi-disciplinary efforts to characterize a neighbourhood with respect to a range of sustainability themes. Themes include water, energy, natural environment, waste, transportation, and generally, quality of life. Studies include extensive community consultation and lead to a recommended SNAP approach for implementation, to complement programs and services already envisioned by the municipality and associated agencies. The Bayview Glen SNAP was commissioned by the TRCA in association with the City of Markham.
Scope of Services
TMIG, as part of a larger multi-disciplinary team, was retained to undertake the SNAP for the Bayview Glen neighbourhood in Markham. TMIG provided input to the overall SNAP investigation, and had specific responsibility in areas relating to water resource management.
The neighbourhood is prone to flooding due to inadequate storm drainage systems and high groundwater conditions. TMIG developed LID solutions integrated with the designs for rehabilitation of the parks and roadways to simultaneously achieve a number of objectives, including reduced inflows to the sanitary sewer, reduced flooding, improved water quality, and increased tree canopy.
