Site Overview


Throughout this website you will find these two navigational tips useful:

  • Whenever you want to return to the Home Page, click on the logo that is in the upper left hand corner, at the top of most pages.

  • Whenever you click on a link to somebody else’s website, a new window will open to display that page. To return to our website, close that new window.

The Home Page gives direct access to each of the 15 Topics of the Plan. For each topic, a narrative introduction links to separate sections about a strategy for achieving goals, indicators by which to measure progress, and a listing of the drafting group, with affilliations, of that portion of the Plan.

On the Home Page, above and below the links to the Plan, there are links to the other sections of the website:

forums has a link to Sustainable City Talk, our web discussion board, as well as information about our Announcements e-mail list and access to its archives.
