Welcome to Sustainable Jamestown!

What is Sustainable Jamestown?

The Town of Jamestown strives to meet our existing needs without compromising resources for future generations. Municipal decision-making will weigh the social, economic, and environmental impacts of its choices and consider their long-term effects.

Sustainable Jamestown is a way to connect with the Town and each other about sustainability issues. It includes an action plan with things we can all do as a community to ensure that what we love about Jamestown is still here for future generations.

Sustainable Jamestown is about planning for change in order to be stronger and more resilient, so that we can adapt, bounce back from problems and crises quickly, and maintain quality of life for all Islanders.

  • How can we maintain our local resident-serving businesses?
  • How can we ensure that our children, grandchildren, aging parents, and others can afford to live here in the future and have appropriate services and housing?
  • Where is our infrastructure most at risk and what can we do about it?
  • How can we better protect our drinking water supply?
  • How do we take advantage of tourism without harming our natural environment or quality of life?
  • How do we maintain an active spirit of volunteerism
