The City of Nelson is committed to a sustainable future.  For the City of Nelson, sustainability is about having a productive economy, a well protected environment, and healthy citizens with strong cultural connections.  It is about living well today while preparing for the future.  The City of Nelson's Path to 2040 Sustainability Strategy was created through an open and collaborative process that sets the direction for future policy and planning decisions, and articulates the community vision for sustainability.  It is an umbrella document under which future work will align.


The City of Nelson sustainability initiative involves the following main components:

  1. Path to 2040 Sustainability Strategy
  2. Corporate Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan
  3. Sustainable Waterfront and Downtown Master Plan
  4. Low Carbon Path to 2040: Community Energy and Emissions Action Plan
  5. Affordable Housing Strategy [PDF - 5.8 MB]
  6. Active Transportation Plan [PDF - 4.5 MB]

On May 13, 2013, Nelson City Council adopted a new Official Community Plan.  The OCP incorporates all of the important sustainability initiatives that have been completed since 2008.
