Sustainable Tucson has engaged the community in developing a citizen-driven “Sustainability Plan” for Tucson.
This process has been underway since January 2009.
PRIORITIES TOWARD SUSTAINABILITY
Community connection, reconnection, networking, awareness, belonging, and shared sense of urgency are the first priorities.
Working together as a community is a requirement for building resiliency and a sustainable future.
Other key priorities identified so far are that Tucson needs to:
- Engage in an inclusive regional visioning process for our future urban form and public infrastructures.
- Diversify and electrify our system of mobility and employ clean renewable energy, particularly solar. We need to reduce overall travel demand by forming urban village and neighborhood hubs connected by bike paths, sidewalks, and public transit.
- Relocalize and re-skill our economy including an intensive “buy local” program sponsored by city/county/state tax dollars.
- Prioritize green retro-fitting of housing and green redevelopment over new growth.
- Cultivate a more self-reliant regional food system.
- Take personal and community responsibility for making healthy choices.
- Work cooperatively to educate and support effective use of rainwater and grey water –our only true sustainable water supply.
- Develop operational definitions of sustainability for different areas
- Map our community assets and resources
- establish incentives for positive change.
