Honor Award – Sustainability and Environmental Planning: Town of Nederland Comprehensive Plan Update 2013

Nederland understands and embraces sustainability. In this context it was imperative that the Town of Nederland address sustainability through their Comprehensive Plan and make it meaningful and actionable. It has already led to implementation of a Sustainability Action Plan, directly building upon the policies and action items recommended through the 2013 Comprehensive Plan. While many communities speak to sustainability in broad terms, the Town of Nederland needed something different. The 2013 Nederland Comprehensive Plan Update was bold in its approach, was clear in its recommendations, and will lead to the change that the community envisions.
