Community Sustainability Plan

TBM Future Story: Our Community Sustainability Plan

The Town of The Blue Mountains is creating a Community Sustainability Plan to ensure our town and its residents, workers and visitors thrive for generations to come. We're calling this the TBM Future Story. The plan development process will include discussions around how we can ensure a prosperous, livable, and healthy future for all. We want to hear your ideas on ways we can make the most of what we love about The Blue Mountains and our community while supporting changes that make life here even better.

What is a Community Sustainability Plan? 

A Community Sustainability Plan (CSP) helps to shape local decision making by providing a clear path to making the future as bright as it can be. That means protecting our natural environment and making choices that will support a healthy, successful, and welcoming community for the next 50 years. The CSP will focus on four key areas of sustainability. These four 'chapters' will help us write the story of our future:

  • Social issues (how we can all live our best lives)
  • Environmental considerations (how we protect our natural resources and manage climate change)
  • Economic considerations (how the community can remain vibrant and successful for decades to come)
  • Cultural issues (how our human and natural heritage can be preserved and enhanced)

The TBM Future Story will complement the other planning processes currently being undertaken by the Town to ensure we have a clear approach to meeting local priorities and making the most of our community's gifts.
