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.
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:
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.
Want to get involved? You can help by sharing your ideas and priorities during a comprehensive public engagement process, with the first phase of engagement taking place from January 18, 2021 to February 26, 2021.
