The City of Tracy recognizes that a healthy and prosperous community strategically balances economic, environmental, and social sectors of community planning. In partnership with the State of California and with input from the Tracy community, the City developed a comprehensive Sustainability Action Plan.
The Plan is a detailed, long-range strategy to achieve sustainability in the sectors of greenhouse gas emissions, energy, transportation and land use, solid waste, water, agriculture and open space, biological resources, air quality, public health, and economic development. Collectively, addressing community development through these lenses will strengthen Tracy as a place that is attractive, prosperous, and adaptive to social, political, and environmental changes. The Sustainability Action Plan contains a roadmap to reducing consumption of nonrenewable resources, improving public health, promoting economic vitality, implementing the General Plan, and engaging Tracy residents. These efforts will also assist Tracy in balancing local economic development objectives with the State of California’s required emission reduction targets and other environmental goals.
