Sustainability Action Plan: Open Space Preservation
Goals and measures for this category:
Open Space Preservation
- Ensure the protection of an ecologically-functioning network of critical open space areas, restore natural habitats, and accelerate urban reforestation in order to create recreation areas and pristine environments that are free from pollution and construction.
- Establish and maintain connections between wildlife habitats by identifying and protecting corridors for unimpeded movement.
- Limit development in areas that may pose natural or man-made environmental hazards by researching and proposing non-destructive alternatives for sensitive areas, such as brownfield sites.
The measurement of success in this category will be the total number of acres of protected open space for public recreation as well as preserved natural habitats.
