SDG Community Maps Now Available to the Public 

For Immediate Release 

October 31, 2018 

The Counties, Ontario – SDG is excited to announce the launch of our online interactive mapping tool, Community Maps! Community Maps, found on www.sdgcounties.ca under eServices, County Maps, is an application that is available in both desktop and mobile formats.  Community Maps provides a range of helpful information about local communities; from parks and recreation to water and sewer infrastructure.  

Residents can now use Community Maps to find points of interest including libraries, schools, cemeteries, community centres, and parks. Creating and printing maps, measuring distances and finding out more about property specifics is now only a few clicks away. 

Community Maps is only the first of a series of online mapping tools that will be publicly available. Stay tuned as added features, data and maps are enhanced, developed and refined on a regular, ongoing basis.
