V2A - Visions to Action
Visions to Action is a long-term collaborative initiative to move the community of Rossland towards sustainability. It encompasses work being undertaken by the City of Rossland, volunteer Task Forces and community groups, and citizens themselves. This site celebrates the successes of that initiative, and outlines the work yet to be undertaken.
Strategic Sustainability Plan (SSP)
In February 2007, the City of Rossland started work on a long-term sustainability strategy for the municipality. The initiative, called Visions to Action, was framed around engaging the community in a conversation about the desired future of Rossland and building awareness within the community and beyond of how we can plan for a better, more sustainable future. Through the collaborative efforts of the city and a multitude of Rossland residents, a Strategic Sustainability Plan (SSP) was developed containing a Community Vision for 2030.
Sustainability Commission and Task Forces
