Recognizing the realities of climate change as we move into the 21st Century, the demand to move towards renewable energy sources such as wind, tidal and solar are all part of a diversified economy. City Council wishes to work towards becoming a community that showcases a balance between economic growth and environmental protection. Sustainability is not only modeled by adopting and promoting alternative sources of energy, but also social enterprises, local food production and distribution, and other components such as investing in community green spaces that promote happy, healthy residents.
Moving forward, the City will offer residents similar opportunities to provide input into the continued sustainable redevelopment of City spaces. Public participation will set the tone for future sustainability-related policy development.
In 2018, Mayor and Council approved a 2030 Sustainable City Draft Policy Objective document, which was considered as part of the renewal of the Official Community Plan in 2020-2021. To review the Policy document, see the link below:
