What actions should we take to make Vallejo a more sustainable community?
One definition of sustainability is ensuring that our actions now do not compromise the ability of future generations to enjoy the same options that we have today. Sustainable land use planning relies not only on preserving and protecting natural and historic resources and conserving water and energy, but also on offering opportunities for meaningful employment and social interaction. When residents and business owners are engaged in the community, they have a stake in its future and an opportunity to contribute and help it thrive. Learn more about the scenarios.
Land uses patterns have the potential for creating a more sustainable community. Please consider the following eight criteria when considering the three Scenarios and the Preferred Scenario.
