These are critical components in maintaining the community's natural attributes and livability. Environmental development permit goals also recognize that the conservation of nature and its ecosystems are a substantial
strategy to both mitigate and adapt to climate change.
The goals are as follows:
- Reduce impacts to Environmentally Sensitive Areas
- Minimize air, land and water pollution
- Protect and maintain the urban forest
- Minimize the loss of sensitive ecosystem inventory sites
The primary function of the development permit area designation is to ensure that decision makers have the ability to secure the necessary information and are able to establish conditions of development that minimize development impacts on sensitive ecosystems, rare or endangered plants and animals, and fisheries and wildlife resources.
