Bruderheim sets sights on a greener future
Bruderheim Town Council took steps toward a greener future at the July 4th meeting by approving the town's Environmental Strategic Plan. "The Plan represents our community's commitment to protect and enhance our local natural environment," says Bruderheim Mayor, Karl Hauch.
While the Town already has many impressive environmental feats under its belt, such as a curb-side recycling program, the Bruderheim School's Earth School status, and the Spring Creek Wetland Interpretive Centre, the Plan will help the Town go even further to reach its environmental goals.
The Plan will support existing planning documentation, including the Municipal Development Plan and Strategic Plan 2035, and outlines the Town's vision, principles and actions to meet environmental objectives.
"Under the Plan, we will act as both a community leader and a community enabler, and our commitment to our community is action today." Actions are set out in a number of environmental sectors, including water, air, waste, and land. For example, the Town intends to enhance its relationship with influential partners such as the Fort Air Partnership and Alberta's Industrial Heartland, celebrate Environment Week, and develop a communication strategy to increase environmental awareness.
"As we move forward with the implementation of this Plan, I encourage our residents, local organizations and the business community to not only read this plan, but to identify and share opportunities on how we can all contribute to our shared environmental vision for Bruderheim," adds Hauch. "Together, let's build a more vibrant and healthy environment for our community today, tomorrow and for the years to come."
