The City has issued a Draft For Public Review of its Sustainability Plan. During the month of October, the City will conduct an outreach and awareness campaign called Sustainability Plan :: inform. There will be several opportunities to attend a free public presentation describing the process and contents of the City’s proposed Sustainability Plan.
The City’s official Sustainability Plan will be issued in January 2013, and the Mayor’s Sustainability Summit III :: implement will be held in 2013 on a date to be determined.
From St. Louis Sustainability MeetUp:

If you can’t read the whole thing, at least examine the sections that pertain to your interests, such as health care, education, transportation, jobs, food, etc. And then, please make commenting on the plan a priority.
The link to the whole plan and its many sections is on the City website. You’ll also find the plan at area libraries. Written comments will be accepted until November 14, 2012; the City encourages you to take advantage of the online Comment Form. Information about public presentations relating to the Draft Plan is posted on the Sustainability Website (http://stlouis-mo.gov/sustainability/).
The authors of this plan spent two years assembling it. It may or may not ever be implemented, or even be made actionable. But it presents an opportunity for all of us to readdress Chris’ original reasons for starting this MeetUp. What is Sustainable Development? How do you envision the coming years of transition? What could we do to make our region more resilient?
