Sustainability is a broad concept that encompasses all aspects of municipal operations, business decisions, and residents' daily lives. The St. Cloud Area Sustainability Framework Plan positions local governments, businesses, and residents to make a global impact at a regional level.
To put some structure to this all encompassing concept, the Sustainability Framework Plan outlines a vision and goals, as well as recommends local implementation actions in 17 Best Practice Areas (BPA). The BPA toolboxes also include a sampling of other actions being taken across the country and the world that might be considered for local implementation. By all of us pitching in, we can keep the St. Cloud region the heart of Minnesota and a natural wonder!
