The Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP), Cultivating Creston, has arrived and a new approach to planning is underway in Creston! An approach that supports a forward-looking and adaptable community, recognizing "upstream" solutions to address both local and global challenges.
The commitment to developing an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) was adopted at the January 31, 2012 regular meeting of Council. The ICSP policy framework includes;
- Creston's Sustainability Objectives,
- Creston's Community Priorities and,
- Creston's nine Strategy Areas along with their associated Descriptions of Success (DoS) and current realities.
The development of the ICSP is being made possible through matching funding from the Town of Creston (Gas Tax funding), The British Columbia Real Estate Foundation, and the Canadian Mortgage & Housing Corporation. The funds are targeted to support work with the Whistler Centre for Sustainability and independent consultants during the ICSP development. Together with Town of Creston staff, the Whistler Centre for Sustainability, the Community Sustainability Action Team (CSAT) and public input, the Cultivating Creston Vision is being developed and is expected to guide long-term planning and decision making.
