The Sustainable Santa Fe Commission identified the components to be included in the Plan by reviewing resolutions passed by the City Council and organizing them into topics. Measures for reducing GHG within each topic area are provided with specific goals and methods for measuring progress, where available. Success in the large range of topics covered by this plan will require commitment from the entire Santa Fe government and community including the decision-makers, administration, staff, local non-profits, businesses and individual community members.
This document is intended to be a “living” document. It will be updated to reflect progress in its implementation and changes in technology and lessons learned here and elsewhere. This will enable Santa Fe’s sustainability program to respond to evolving conditions and new approaches in this fast-changing area.
As the City moves forward with the initiatives proposed in this plan, it is the intention to work in concert with the County, and other entities within the region, to create a regionally coordinated approach. Many of the initiatives require a regional approach and many would benefit from the economy of scale afforded by such cooperation.
