Sustainability Strategic Plan Survey
The City of Hendersonville is working on creating its first Sustainability Strategic Plan, following the establishment of the Sustainability Division in 2023. The plan aims to set measurable goals that integrate environmental, social, and economic values to reduce the overall impact on the environment while strengthening the community.
“This survey is an important step in gaining valuable input to help drive the recommendations for the City’s Sustainability Strategic Plan,” said the City of Hendersonville’s Sustainability Manager, Caitlyn Gendusa. “The plan will ensure there are actionable and tangible goals to expand sustainability efforts while realizing long-term cost savings for City operations.”
The plan’s primary focus areas include energy, transportation, waste management, land management, and water. While the primary actions will be at the municipal level, community input is crucial. To gather perspectives, an online survey is being launched at www.publicinput.com/sustainability24. It takes approximately ten minutes to complete the survey.
Feedback will contribute to understanding the challenges and opportunities for improving the quality of life for all residents and community members through sustainability efforts. In-person public input sessions took place in 2023, but the online survey provides an additional way for the opinions of the community to be heard. The City of Hendersonville encourages community members to share the survey with friends, family, and colleagues. Responses will be accepted until March 31, 2024.
