Sustainability Action Plan: Sustainable Development
Goals and measures for this category:
- Revitalize and/or redevelop established and emerging urban cores. Reduce the negative effect of accelerated growth and urban sprawl through mixed use development and infill development in the Sports Complex and Old Town areas.
- Promote neighborhood-centric activity centers that employ a smart growth development template. Create walkable communities and, where applicable, transit-oriented development. Benefits will be: Economic development and an improved tax base; revitalization of downtowns, main streets, and neighborhood centers; and development of needed housing that is as close as possible to jobs and services.
- Develop a program which encourages public and private sustainable development (such as LEED building construction).
