The Sustainable Community at UMore Park: Aspirational Goals and Action Plan for Sustainability & Sustainability Summary
March 2012

The UMore Development LLC engaged international nonprofit BioRegional to help the UMore Park team and its public and private sector colleagues identify goals and performance targets for sustainability at UMore Park and to create a plan to achieve them. This planning process included a facilitated workshop in April 2011, which engaged 80 individuals for two days of intensive discussion followed by a public forum that expanded input and ideas from another 150 citizens.

Two publications have resulted; the full report, based on BioRegional principles, addresses 10 broad areas of sustainability for the planned community. The Sustainability Summary is a companion publication highlighting the most compelling aspects of the 10 principles and aspirational goals.
