Environment in 2030

In 2030, the Town of Huntersville will be a community that continues to place a high value on the preservation and enhancement of the natural environment, as well as its scenic and cultural assets, through the adoption and implementation of progressive land use and transportation policies. The use of renewable and alternative energy sources (e.g. solar and wind) will be encouraged, together with Green Building” and “Green Neighborhood Development” Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) technologies and practices, to reduce environmental impacts and dependence on non-renewable resources. New growth and development will be directed away from environmentally sensitive and protected areas and toward those areas which can accommodate development, resulting in an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable land development pattern.
