In 2012, the Gambier Island Local Trust Committee initiated a project to create a Sustainability Checklist for its local trust area. The Advisory Planning Commission met in May 2012 to provide advice to the Local Trust Committee on the format, and suggested a resource guide to educate owners on a variety of topics about sustainable design. In February 2014, staff completed a Sustainability Guide for the entire Northern Region of the Islands Trust Area.
This Sustainability Guide is intended to be a resource for property owners, especially those beginning plans for development on their property, about sustainable site design and building methods.
