Sustainability 101

The most often quoted definition of sustainable development is, “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Centuries ago, the Native American tribe lived according to their great law, that “in every deliberation, [they] must consider the impact on the seventh generation.” Sustainability isn’t a new concept, but it certainly remains relevant in our search for lasting community prosperity.

EPA mentions that Sustainable development is not a trade-off between economic and environmental well-being, but the synergy between them. To read more about sustainability, we recommend the following web-sites:
