New Development and Community Planning


Sustainable development can be defined as development that does not sacrifice long-termPA040114.JPG environmental quality for short-term benefits. It also preserves resources and the enviroment for future generations. Sustainable development does not imply total preservation or non-development, but requires that decisions made by Council, industry, and individuals consider all biological, social, and economic consequences. The groundwork for effective Bear Smart management in all new development zones is established by implementing sound community and regional bylaw systems.
