Implementation of the Local Agenda 21 Framework at the City of Marion
Local Agenda 21 was first introduced to Marion Council in 1995 as part of a strategic planning program known as the integrated local area planning (ILAP) process that aimed to address the priority environmental, social and economic issues affecting the City.
The Local Agenda 21 Environmental Policy and Action Plan (1997) detailing the City of Marion’s commitment to working with the community to promote ecologically sustainable development in the local area was first drafted by the Environment Policy Advisory Committee (EPAC) and endorsed by Council in 1997.
Broad Horizons, Bright Future the City of Marion Strategic Plan 2010 – 2020 (Strategic Plan) is now the key document for articulating Council’s contribution to the Community Vision, identifying Council’s Corporate Vision and setting out the high level direction for the City of Marion over the years ahead.
The principles of Local Agenda 21 have been incorporated into the City of Marion Strategic Plan as part of Council’s long-term commitment to sustainability, and are also reflected in the Community Vision.
The full text of the territorial initiative to sustainable development of Marion will be available soon in the digital book Territoires durables en devenir, edited by Christiane Gagnon, Presses de l'Université du Quebec.
