Sustainability is the idea that everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.

Sustainability Action Plan (SAP)
The Titusville City Council directed staff to develop a Sustainability Action Plan (SAP) to better understand current and future challenges to be better equipped to make smart and innovative decisions that keep the City vibrant for future generations.
The City of Titusville adopted the Sustainability Action Plan (SAP) on April 25, 2023. The objective of the SAP is to provide a broad and comprehensive perspective on community sustainability and is intended to address environmental, economic, and social equity goals. The plan considers interrelated issues such as climate change, population change, land use, infrastructure, natural resource management, quality of life, public health, and economic development. In creating the SAP, a multi-phase approach was utilized to prioritize public input and produce a draft Plan.
The first phase of the SAP is centered around an extensive public engagement process designed to understand the community's preferred areas of focus for the Plan.
To view the previous community engagement of the SAP visit the project website at https://tinyurl.com/TitusvilleSAP. The website has three key features: information on the December 9th, 2021, Public Workshop; an Online Survey; and an Idea Wall where the community was able to discuss Sustainability. Additionally, watch the Youtube video from November 23, 2021, to learn more about Phase I efforts of the SAP.
Phase II of the SAP utilized the community-driven focus areas to draft and implement the SAP through specific action items. A draft of plan was presented to City Council on October 25, 2022, at the 5:30 PM.
