Legacy Communities Charter participant since 12/01/2010

Under the Legacy Communities Green Tier Charter, municipalities take actions and share information to achieve superior environmental performance with regard to one or both of the following areas:

  1. water quality and water resources management; and/or
  2. sustainability practices.

About the charter

Two municipalities are piloting the water quality component of the charter by preparing, evaluating and implementing an overall Water Resources Plan that integrates the municipality's full range of water resources issues. Municipalities subscribing to the sustainability component of the charter are initially focusing on improving a municipality's impact on the environment by using strategy options listed in Appendix 3 of the charter to develop a Sustainability and Implementation and Monitoring Plan. Sustainability practices could include reducing green house gas emissions, reducing municipal energy use and developing and implementing a transportation system that reduces total vehicle miles traveled, increasing access to local foods and supporting local business development. The charter is in effect until December 1, 2020.
