Submitted by robertgnewell on 8 November 2012

A new MC3 case study synopsis has been released.  This one features the City of North Vancouver, located on the north shore of the Greater Vancouver Regional District.

In 2002, the City of North Vancouver engaged in the process of writing its Official Community Plan, and sustainability was a central tenet of the plan. The OCP contains definitions of sustainability, livability, and ‘complete community’, and density is described as a method of achieving these goals. In addition, the OCP contains specific language around energy efficiency and GHG reductions. To date, community emissions have been reduced by 11% below 2005 levels and 5% below 1995 levels.
