Sustainability Commission

Rossland City Council appointed the Sustainability Commission to help guide the implementation of the Strategic Sustainability Plan. The Commission is governed by the Sustainability Commission bylaw and consists of seven community members and two councilors.

In an attempt to ensure ongoing community sustainability, the City of Rossland initiated the Visions to Actions sustainability planning process in 2007; in early 2008 City Council adopted the resulting plan.

Ultimately, the Visions to Action Strategic Sustainability Plan is part of an ongoing process that will evolve and grow. Currently the plan identifies 11 Focus Areas (encompassing social, environmental and economic issues), their End-state Goals and the strategic actions that will help the community achieve these End-state Goals. The plan also describes a preliminary implementation plan, indicators of sustainability and an outline for the collection of baseline data.
