A healthy environment is increasingly a prerequisite for many businesses and workers looking to relocate to the region.
Protecting and restoring our green infrastructure network, waterways, agricultural preservation areas, and forested lands will help:
Enhance community health
Improve the quality of our water and air
Preserve remaining open spaces
Plan 2035 commits to proactively greening our built environment, restoring degraded resources, and promoting a more sustainable development pattern that reduces our reliance on driving. Through this it will and shift development pressures away from our greenfields.
