Sustainability Committee

The Sustainability Committee works to develop and implement policies and practices that integrate land use, transportation, housing, and employment opportunities in a complementary fashion. Local efforts will examine the implications of the built environment through a deliberative process of public input, identifying capital improvements, establishing acceptable design guidelines, and adopting regulatory policies. The MPO seeks to develop and utilize a wide array of public outreach methods to document sustainability, livability, and quality of life issues. Through interagency coordination the MPO will develop the rationale and planning processes necessary to support community livability, improved public transit services, "walkable communities" and "complete street" initiatives necessary to fostering development of an integrated healthy community. Membership of the Committee consists of representatives (or their alternates) from, but not limited to, the following sectors:

Academicians & Education Experts Business Groups
Civic Leaders Community Development Activists
Economic Development Professionals Elected Officials
Environmental Advocates Financial Institutions
Faith Based Organizations Health Care Professionals
Health & Fitness Experts Manufacturers and Major Employers
