The Sustainability Plan, or Valley Vision, provides a road map of land use development, building and site design, transportation, infrastructure, and streetscape strategies that will be used to enable residents and businesses to more effectively meet the vital human needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs by preserving ecosystems and natural resources.

  • Meet the hierarchy of present and future human needs fairly and efficiently.
  • Reduce dependence on chemicals and other manufactured substances that can accumulate in nature.
  • Reduce dependence on activities that harm life-sustaining ecosystems.
  • Reduce dependence upon fossil fuels and extracted underground metals and materials.
