Sustainable Strategic Plan
 
On August 23,  2010 the City Council approved the City's Sustainability Strategic Plan. The Sustainability Strategic Plan is a 20-year road map that provides direction in ten specific goal areas as to how the Alliance partners can improve levels of sustainability. The plan also includes a greenhouse gas inventory and collection of data indicators that provide a baseline for the community’s current practices pertaining to sustainable lifestyles.  In 2017, the plan will be updated to a short-term strategic plan with measurable goals.
