Greenvisions, Citizens For Brampton Conservation, formed in 2007, is a non-profit citizen group. Our goal is to promote improvements and inclusion of such lands to the full potential as greenspace for public enjoyment, preserving historic, natural, and aesthetic characters of our environment.  Greenvisions supports development but we believe that growth should come with a balance in order for us to accomplish the goal of being a truly sustainable City. www.greenvisions.ca
