During the development of the 2016 Municipal Sustainability Plan (MSP), two actions to build environmental performance and awareness were identified; first, to develop and approve an Environmental Stewardship Strategy (ESS) with key focus areas on water, land, energy, buildings & infrastructure, waste, and air; the second action to develop an environmental program with key elements being awareness through communications and signage for Town infrastructure.
As per the MSP, the ESS will highlight policy direction, standards improvement, community programs, and resource needs. This will allow the Town to identify the most important actions to reduce environmental impact and initiate community programs with the objective to advance the goal of a healthy environment regarding water, land, energy, buildings and infrastructure, waste and air.
Thank you to all participants who provided their input on what environmental initiatives are a priority for them and their families. Your feedback will help the Town identify initiatives and priorities to help reach our environmental goals. Congratulations to our winner of the ESS Survey, Sherry S!
