Community sustainability


Strategic Direction 3: A County that thinks ahead and wisely shapes the future


The proposal for a Community Sustainability Plan was accepted by Council in March 2014 as a means of developing a policy platform from which the County, area municipalities and, potentially, the community can influence decisions that secure our future, including new landfill development, source water protection, caring for an aging population, waste management and other issues that determine quality of life.


The development of a community-driven sustainability plan supports the County’s commitment to thinking ahead and wisely shaping the future by applying social, financial and environmental sustainability lenses to significant decisions.



Our strategy

  • Provide a policy framework for furthering the goals and objectives of the community in a manner consistent with the strategic plans of all nine municipalities
