Sustainability is commonly referred to as the "Triple Bottom Line" approach–considering the environmental, social, and financial components of a community, organization, or business. When using sustainability as a foundational planning tool, it ensures equity among the environment, society, and economy. These three elements drive sustainability in the City's long-term planning and decision-making, ensuring that sustainability is thoughtfully programmed into each municipal function.
There is much that you can do as residents and business owners to embrace sustainability measures into your everyday practices, from recycling to planned natural landscaping, or water conservation to solar energy generation.
