A Guide to Green Choices:

Ideas & Practical Advice for Land Use Decisions in British Columbia Communities

To help local governments continue the extensive work they have already done in fostering green communities, the Ministry of Community and Rural Development has developed A Guide to Green Choices (PDF 1.5 MB) to provide practical advice and ideas in making land use decisions.

This Guide is expected to work in tandem with many other programs and projects already underway, including Living Water Smart and the BC Climate Action Plan. Many of the ideas proposed in this Guide are eligible for funding through various provincial government programs including: Towns for Tomorrow; LocalMotion; the LiveSmart Green Cities Awards; and, the Canada-UBCM Agreement on the Transfer of Federal Gas Tax Revenues. In addition to the funding programs, the Guide is also linked with the BC Climate Action Tool Kit.

The document is structured around seven major issues that B.C. local governments face in their work to advise green land use decisions.
