Visions to Action Strategic Sustainability Plan


The Strategic Sustainabilty Plan (SSP), created through the Visions to Action process initiated in 2007, was approved by Council in May 2008. The SSP is centred around a Community Vision for 2030 developed through a collaborative community process.  The Community Vision for 2030 is:

In 2030, Rossland is a resilent alpine community and a leader in balancing social, environmental, and economic sustainability. Celebrated for its unique cultural heritage, small-town charm and world-class natural amenities, Rossland offers residents and visitors alike extensive recreational opportunities, trail networks and green spaces.  The thriving, diverse economy embraces innovation and entrepreneurism, and its citizens actively contribute to a welcoming, vibrant community that is safe, inclusive and affordable.

The Strategic Sustainability Plan is the guiding document for the community's sustainability initiatives outlined on this site. It is intended to guide the actions of the City, Sustainability Commission, Task Forces and citizens of Rossland in reaching our Community Vision. The SSP outlines 147 Strategic Actions for 11 Focus Areas.  Version 1.1 of the Strategic Sustainability Plan contains an updated Appendix E from SSP Version 1.0.
