Draft Sustainability Plan available for public comment

A draft of the city’s first Sustainability Plan was presented to City Council on Monday, Nov. 16. The draft Plan will serve as the city’s multi-year strategic plan to help Westminster become a more sustainable city.

The Plan is organized around seven themes:

  • Energy
  • Economic resilience
  • Environment and natural resources
  • Health and wellness
  • Housing and neighborhoods
  • Materials and waste
  • Transportation and mobility

In addition, five cross-cutting areas address issues that touch on all seven of the themes. These cross-cutting areas are:

  • Education
  • Equity
  • Climate
  • Resilience
  • Safety

The draft Plan is now available for public comment, and the comment period will conclude at the end of January 2021.  The draft Plan, including summary documents, can be found on the city’s web site at www.cityofwestminster.us/Residents/CityServices/Sustainability/SustainabilityPlan.

A variety of opportunities will be made available for the public to provide comments, including the comment form on the city’s web site and a virtual open house.  Given the challenges to in-person public engagement during the COVID-19 public health crisis, details are still being worked out on how that might occur. 

Please send any questions to sustainability@westminsterco.gov.
