“Sustainable”, be careful who is using this word and what are their objectives.
- Private property owners (who represent 94% of the total property tax revenue) are interested in maintaining our property and the public property for the long term enjoyment in an unspoiled natural environment
- The commercial sector is focused on the commercialization of the property and sustaining their cash flow.
- Be careful of how and why the word “sustainable” is used.
- We must continue to monitor and encourage our Municipal Council as they attempt to balance the different intents of the word “sustainable”.
