Environment & Sustainability
Our community is lucky to have clean creeks, intact forests and abundant wildlife, both on land and in the water. Yet, more than ever, residents are experiencing the effects of a changing climate, such as shoreline flooding from sea level rise, more storms events, and summer droughts, and these will likely continue. Might add few other here: reduced snowpack results in economic losses from reduced winter sports, stress on fish stocks, increased risk of forest fires, water rationing, damage and power outages from wind storms.
We are committed to reducing our community’s carbon footprint to limit climate change, working to enhance our environment’s resiliency, and finding ways for us all to live more sustainably. We do that developing policies and infrastructure to support these goals, practising sustainable operations, and providing opportunities and encouragement for residents to do the same.
