Does your comprehensive plan address sustainability?
The local comprehensive plan, known in some states as a general or master plan, is intended to be the leading policy document for our communities, containing a long-range vision for community change and establishing goals, priorities, and action steps to help achieve those visions. However, many local sustainability planning initiatives have happened outside of the comprehensive planning process.
This Essential Information Packet provides articles and guidebooks discussing how communities can integrate sustainability into their comprehensive plans. The packet also contains examples of adopted local plans that either use sustainability as an organizing principle or incorporate an element, chapter, or section on community sustainability.
