Trent Lands


January - February 2013

Consultation Event #2 - Possibilities for the Trent Lands

The following notes were made by table groups directly on the maps, but were not

associated with specific parcels or areas.

Sustainable Agriculture

• Why aren’t we generating revenue and educating students at the

same time by using the agricultural lands for agriculture? Trent to

Aramark

• Use good topsoil for farming, not building

• Establishing an experimental farm will have several benefits to Trent

and the community. It provides hands-on training for Sustainable

Agriculture and Food Systems Program and helps Trent to start a

new leadership in the area of Sustainable Agriculture. It provides

research support for CRC in Sustainable Agriculture and graduate

students in this program, Research will help exploring sustainable

farming methods, solve the special programs of local farmers, and

provide new technology. Establishing long-term plots will help to

study effects of agricultural production and the changes that have

occured over years. It provides valuable information on research

activities relating to sustainable cropping systems, nutrient cycling,

global change and other future topics currently unknown. The

research will help evaluate the long-term impacts of soil and

crop management practices on the environmental, biological and

economic health of the soil, water and air resources

• Develop large agricultural area for growing food to sell to Aramark

so they provide local food.

• Grow trees to sell to community

• Research heritage fruits, trees and pollination (insects)

• So many sustainable agriculture initiatives!

• Talk to trentvegetablegardens@gmail.com, Doug Evans

• Can make money selling food to Aramark and other institutions/

research

• Don’t have to always put buildings on land to make money

Research Parks

• Repurpose DNA buildings and modules for Research Park (move

departments to new college)

Conference Centre/Arena/Hotel

• Scale - not too big

• Careful placement - respectful

• Natural materials

• Link with Peterborough community

• Don’t disrupt natural environment

Trent’s Strengths

We feel that Trent is…

• Does what they want and don’t listen

• Pretend to listen to community, but admin just does what they want

(power dam and water street housing for residents)

• Trying to be known for environmental/biological programs but really

don’t care about the environment

Trent should be…

• Leader in sustainable agriculture, linked with “Cordon Bleu” or

hospitality program

• Leader in research in environmental areas

• Leader in social justice / indigenous studies

• Known for natural beauty

Transportation and Trails

• Bike infrastructure, ie covered shelter for winter riders

• Add trails to nature areas

• Trails need wayfinding signs (and educational?), not overpowering

• Need parking for Lakefield Trail - can’t park anywhere up to

Lakefield

• Transportation zones/buffers between uses - eg minimize impact

of residential/commercial on nature areas

• Trails for winter cross country skiing, trails for peace walks,

student-teacher talks, biking

• Consider: Parking - be innovative. Walkable, complete streets.

Transit

• All areas to be connected by trails

• Save the River Road

• I must protest the proposed closing of Nassau Mills Road

north of the bridge at Nassau Mills – there is no sound reason

that the road cannot be left as a through street. It can be used

as a feeder street with a connection to the realigned Armour

Road at Nassau, and at the north end of Trent University near

the 9th line

• This stretch of Nassau Mills Road is one of the nicest parts of

the whole trip from Peterborough to Lakefield. Many people

stop and have a picnic along the rive or stop and fish

• Was once called the “River Road Scenic Drive”

• If a new road must be built, to service the University, that is

OK. But, please leave Nassau Mills Road as it is for everyone

to enjoy

• The River Road has been dedicated at the Veteran’s Way. Lets

protect it

General Comments

Sustainable Communities

• We’re building a community, not a city

• Renewable energy and infrastructure - sewage, potable water

Eco Village at Trent Brainstorm:

• Consists of 20 single dwellings showcasing sustainable

building

• Natural building materials, Passive solar design, Living roofs

Geothermal, Active solar

• Beautiful/inspiring

• Clustered houses

• Naturalized backyards – green corridors

• Pond – innovative water treatment

• Student housing showcasing green architecture

• Innovative sustainable daycare

• Naturalized play scapes

• Assisted living for elderly – focus on intergenerational

opportunities

• Artisan section

• Community garden

• Build and designed by Fleming College or Endeavour Centre

• Work on buildings used as training ground for sustainable

construction

• Used as part of Trent’s master’s in sustainability

• Show piece to our community and beyond about alternatives

to subdivision

• Associate with Trent’s School for Innovation

• Partner with Trent’s School of Professional learning

• Use as a demo for visiting schools – environmental education

• Set up as a study – with equipment to monitor energy

savings, heat retention, thermal efficiency, air quality, resident

satisfaction, effect on community development

• Have creative spaces for students – incubation centre for

sustainability

Implementation

• Lease only

• Lease only! Does leasing mean that the City doesn’t get development

fees or taxes?

• Governance: Sustainable communities managed by the

communities, not the University.

• Development planned and contracted by the “residents” through

a cooperative on condominium-like legal arrangement

• Land sustainability plan necessary before choices are made

Partners

• Public/private partnerships

• Shining Waters Eco Village

• Service clubs

• Sustainability Trent

• Small businesses and professionals

• Endeavour building people

• Renewable energy company

• Green-Up

• Federal government

• Banks

• Ontario hydro OPG

Tools

Trent Severn Waterway

• A list of some 9-10 names of

local resources/businesses

that could help in planning

building, eg Endeavour

Project

• Exchange program with other

universities

• TCCBE

• Local large companies

• Fleming College

• Integration with plans for City and County, especially Sustainable

Peterborough and Cultural Plans etc.

• Places to Grow etc

University policies ensuring sustainable development at every

stage

• The use of alumni talent in concert with students - use student

focus of study and alumni experience to develop and implement

plans, eg business studies legacy project

• 5-year academic focus, whole university focused curriculum

on various aspects of development plan, eg business students

legacy project

Resources

• Steering Committee made of not only Trent people but

community interested people

• Leasing arrangements

• Ecology Park, Endeavour Centre, Camp Kawartha, Seasoned

Spoon, Planet Cafe, Sustainable Building Program at Sir

Sanford, Trent School of Sustainable Education

General

• No big box

• Hedge rows critical for wildlife movement

• Ask the land what it needs

• Look to the land to develop the parcels of yourself

• The land sustains all life - ask the land

• The true pharmacy is the forest, the meadow, the wetland. It is

these we must access

• We are one: what is best for all beings?

• Harmony with all beings

• Balance

• Leave the light organe parcels as is (“Additional Parcels to be

Discussed”)

• Bring a “Cordon Bleu” chef program to Trent or grow food for Sir

Sanford food program

• Mixed use is vital
