Developing the Plan

When developing our Community Sustainability Plan, we used a five-phase model established by the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association.

Our plan is guided by the philosophy that sustainability involves stewarding our environment, economy, social, culture and governance to meet today’s needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

As we worked on this plan, we were introduced to terms and ideas that are used in particular ways in the sustainability movement. The glossary in Appendix F defines how key terms are used in this plan.
