What does Sustainability Mean in Cranberry Township?
Sustainability is generally centered around what are known as "The Three E's" of environment, economy, and equality. It takes a broad look at the world in an effort to keep social, economic, and natural systems in order for future generations. Cranberry Township is committed to sustainability in all aspects through its Healthy Cranberry Campaign.
Citizen Advisory Panel and the Cranberry Plan Steering Committee were asked to define the concept of sustainability for Cranberry Township as part of their work in drafting the 25-year Comprehensive Plan, The Cranberry Plan. This resulted in a set of guiding principles that will help ensure that Cranberry's long-term health and sustainability are always factored into decision-making. The principles were adopted by the Board of Supervisors in March 2008 and shared with all Township departments.
