In March 2013, the Cheltenham Township Board of Commissioners adopted a Sustainability Plan designed to foster sustainability in its own actions and promote green practices among the residents and businesses in the community. A first in Montgomery County, this ambitious, multi-year, Township-wide plan establishes 10 goals and objectives that are applicable to all organizations, institutions and individuals.

At the core of the plan is the Municipal Action Plan.  Developed by a dedicated group of Township residents and community representatives, along with a Montgomery County Planning Commission consultant team, the Plan outlines steps the municipality can take to function more sustainably and serve as a leader and model for other communities in energy and land use, mobility, waste management, and quality of life.

The Cheltenham Township Environmental Advisory Council will monitor the plan's implementation and promoting community involvement.Cover artwork of the Sustainability Plan
