ClipartThe City of Burnsville completed a year-long sustainability review as part of its governance process in 2007. The process included input from a broad array of experts and stakeholders. By the end of the process, the city developed 14 priority areas of sustainability called Best Practices Areas (BPA’s). During 2008, city staff worked with a consultant team to develop a more detailed sustainability guide plan based on the 14 BPA’s. The guide plan provides practical ideas, activities and strategies for the city organization and the community that would make Burnsville more sustainable in future years. The Sustainability Guide Plan is aligned with the city’s environmental end statement and the Council’s commitment to sustainability, which states:

“The City of Burnsville will promote development that maintains or enhances economic opportunity and community well-being while protecting and restoring the natural environment upon which people and economies depend. Sustainability meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
