On November 1, 2010, Sustain Charlotte publicly launched Charlotte 2030: A Sustainable Vision for Our Region. This first-of-its-kind vision for our region's future is the product of countless volunteer hours, and the engagement of more than 100 local citizens and experts from many disciplines using a collaborative and consensus-based process, drawn from government, the nonprofit and private sectors, and academia.
These local citizens had expertise in one or more of the ten key issues that comprise this comprehensive vision for local sustainability. The ten issues are: Air, Energy, Food, Buildings and Homes, Economy, Parks, Trees and Green Space, Recycling and Waste Reduction, Social Equity, Transportation, and Water.
Details of the public launch, including those who expressed their support, can be found here. Since 2010 we and many other local organizations and individuals have been working hard to turn this vision into a reality. Thanks to the many people who gave their time and shared their ideas to write this community vision for our future!
