Making Progress

Sustainable Jamestown is more than a plan. It is a framework for making progress toward our shared goals of sustainability and resiliency. The Town will report on how much progress it makes in reaching goals to sustainably use our resources. Here are some ways we measure success:

  • Increase the use of green infrastructure on public and private properties to manage stormwater.
  • Increase in the Town’s recycling and diversion rates (less trash sent to the landfill).
  • Reduce town facility and operations energy usage.
  • Increase in the use of best available technology or best management practices in renovations and new construction.
  • See resident participation in educational opportunities to learn about home gardening and landscaping with native species and environment-friendly techniques.
