Read about Whistler’s future


The 16 strategies, which make up Whistler 2020, formerly known as the Comprehensive Sustainability Plan, are now available for the public to read in draft form.

The strategies have been developed through the work and input of roughly 130 community members over the past five months. They will be online and available at Municipal Hall by Friday June 10.

These strategies make up the draft document of Volume II of Whistler 2020 and establish how Whistler will achieve the shared community vision, priorities and directions.

The strategies range in topic from arts, culture and heritage to health and social issues, resident housing and transportation.

Staff is planning to present the strategies to council at the August 2 meeting.
