In our Centennial Year, the City of Brooks is proud to present our
Municipal Sustainability Plan (MSP). This plan, which is a product of
community participation, will lead us into the next 100 years, and
ensure that our quality of life remains high. The MSP will guide and
direct future strategic planning, project selection, and decision
making; as we head into the future, residents can be assured that their
municipality is working hard to ensure that Brooks is a community that
people are proud to call home.
Under the direction of AUMA’s Comprehensive Guide for Municipal
Sustainability Planning, Municipal Sustainability Planning should be
done in consideration of five main “pillars” of sustainability:
Governance, Economic, Environmental, Cultural, and Social. Though each
of these pillars are represented separately, there is no denying that
they are all part of an inter-connected and inter-dependant system.
When one pillar suffers, so too do the other four; likewise a community
cannot achieve success in one area without sacrificing the strength of
the other four disciplines.
