ABSTRACT FOR GREELEY PRESENTATION
Building A Sustainable Community in Corner Brook
In order for a community to be sustainable it has to continually adjust to meet the social, cultural and economic needs of its residents while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come. While Corner Brook is evolving toward sustainability and more sustainable practices, creating sustainability is a learning process. The City of Corner Brook is committed to the development and implementation a wide variety of projects aimed at promoting sustainability in Corner Brook. This presentation will identify the City’s goals to minimize adverse environmental impact; integrate sustainable policies into community governance and operation; improve municipal working and living environments and foster a culture committed to sustainability within the community.
