Integrated Community Sustainability Plan REFRESH

Description

In 2009, King Township staff pushed forward to lay the foundation of an organized King Township Sustainability Plan, which was adopted by Council in 2012. The Plan, known as 'Sustainable King' ha has been corporately led and community supported.

Sustainability is not just about the environment – it is a forward-looking vision that excites people and brings forth commitment and energy. The King Township Integrated Community Sustainability Plan is about building that Vision and the pathway to get there.

    Welcome to King Township's Sustainability Plan refresh engagement page.

    In King, we have always demonstrated commitment to preserving our natural resources and quality of life. This is our foundation for living, working, and acting sustainably. Planning for sustainability means thinking ahead – in a way that ensures the needs of King's current residents will be met, without compromising the ability of the Township to meet the needs of future generations.

    In 2012 King embarked on a journey to create the plan, a resource that defines the future for the Township of King, community groups, businesses, local organizations and the broader public. It guides and directs how we make decisions, develop partnerships and take action. The plan promotes community vitality and prosperity while respecting, preserving and restoring.

    We've made great strides in making large portions of that plan come to life over the last five years.

    As we reach the end of the first five years, it's time to refocus on what we've done and what still needs to be done. And just like we did five years ago, we're turning to you, our residents, to provide your opinions and feedback on what we've accomplished and what you think we need to focus on for the next five years.

    On this engagement platform, we'll be providing constant updates on our progress. By registering, you'll receive updates as they happen.

    Most importantly, we created several opportunities for you to provide input in different ways, including surveys, discussion forums and crowdsourcing maps.

    Take some time to explore the site and remember to register to keep up with the latest news.

    We need your participation to make it a truly community-based plan.
