The City of Quesnel has taken the principles of sustainability to heart. The formation of the Sustainability Task Force is a good first step. There's also a corporate working group, our Team, that is examining all facets of the City to find ways we can be more sustainable as a local government.
There's an ongoing commitment to the development of cycling and pedestrian trails. Recent developments include:
Recycling and composting
The City encourages recycling at its main landfill site as well as at its three satellite depots. Recent and ongoing initiatives include:
Quesnel Works - Capital Reinvestment Program
The City has a plan to ensure that enough funding is in place for the timely and orderly replacement of infrastructure such as roads and sidewalks. A special reserve fund has been set up - funds deposited here are used only on infrastructure reinvestment.
Sustainability Task Force
The City is moving towards more intensive community sustainability planning. City Council recently approved the formation of a sustainability Task Force to provide advice on how to make Quesnel more sustainable over the long term.
