Let's Go!Where Are We Now? | Where Are We Going? | Where Do We Want to Be? | How Do We Get There? |
The future is not completely beyond our control. It is the work of our own
Robert F. Kennedy
You are ready to go! The Action Plans that you developed in "How Do We Get There?" highlight those actions necessary to put you on the path to realizing your community's vision for its future -- a healthy environment, a strong economy, and a high quality of life. It is now, during implementation, when long-term commitment and resources will be most needed.
In Let's Go! we will point to a variety of tools that can help implement your plans. Some tools require a high level of technical expertise, others can be implemented by high school students and interested volunteers. Since a Green Community reaches out to the diverse community at-large, bringing people together with a range of expertise, knowledge, and skills, we've tried to select tools that enhance stakeholder participation. And although you've worked hard to reach this point and answered many questions, continue to ask of yourselves ... will this project or these tools help us to achieve our future vision?
Keeping the community informed and involved will help keep the energy high. Before long, you will have achieved your vision for a Green Community. Let's Go! You are well on your way to a more healthy, livable, sustainable future.
