Regional Sustainability Plan Public Meeting

Through Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG), City staff have been participating in a Pikes Peak Regional Sustainability Project for El Paso and Teller counties since late 2010. The project has involved over 70 organizations and individuals in our region who collectively attended more than 49 public meetings (pictured) and contributed more than 1,000 professional hours. The plan includes an assessment of current conditions, 20-year sustainability “stretch goals”, and strategies to help our community achieve those goals.The resulting draft Pikes Peak Regional Sustainability Plan is now available for public review. Public comments is encouraged through Dec. 23 and PPACG staff are eager to provide presentations to interested groups.  PPACG anticipates finalizing the plan in January 2012.
