Cultivate a Robust Local Food System
About the Solution

Encourage and facilitate the development of all aspects of a local food system, including but not limited to food production, access, processing, distribution, sales, resiliency, waste, education, and natural resources.

Manage and Conserve Water Resources
About the Solution

Use a comprehensive approach to manage water resources at the watershed scale. This includes coordinating water resources across various sectors and applications, such as water supply, wastewater, reuse, stormwater, watersheds, wetlands, agriculture, and energy.

Manage Land and Resources to Sequester Carbon
About the Solution

Encourage and implement practices that support the urban forest, strengthen carbon sinks, and improve carbon sequestration potential. This includes management of land and resources on both public and private properties.
