2050 Goals - Improving the Quality of Life for all, while enhancing nature. 

After an extensive community consultation process, on April 12, 2016, Phoenix City Council adopted eight 2050 Environmental Sustainability goals that articulate the community's desired long term environmental outcomes that would fulfill the General Plan aspirations of a Sustainable Desert City.

With these long term desired outcomes defined, planning is underway to identify additional short and mid-term goals and metrics to be included in the next update to the General Plan for the community's and Council's consideration. Along with environmental metrics, additional social and economic goals are being considered that would best articulate the community's desired outcomes to become a socially, economically and environmentally Resilient City.
