Environmental Planning in Crested Butte
Few other trade organizations have an eight page strategic plan, updated bi-annually by the president of the association, with detailed Goals, Implementation Strategy, Assigned Responsibility, Timetable, and Budget. What else would you expect from professional planners?
Of course one of my favorite Benjamin Franklin quotes, "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail," is a great reminder of the importance of planning, which has been the focus in Nederland for the past several years.
I was scheduled to participate on a panel discussing sustainability. The panel included two other talented City Planners and champions of sustainability; Chris Meschuk, from Boulder, and Jonathan Wachtel, from Lakewood. I felt honored to review our town planning process, with an audience of professional planners, earning educational credit hours to maintain their professional license.
