A brighter future for the Town of the Blue Mountains

The Town of the Blue Mountains (TBM) has taken a significant step towards a sustainable future with the development of TBM Future Story. This plan is designed around four 'big moves' and 20 'bold actions' to achieve TBM's long-term vision of a thriving, innovative, and sustainable community. The plan was developed through three phases, beginning with a Current State Report summarizing the realities of TBM's context based on research and community perspectives. Phase 2 involved engaging the public through surveys, workshops, and a mobile kiosk to gather input, leading to the creation of a long-term vision statement and goals. Phase 3 brought everything together, leading to the endorsement of TBM Future Story by the Town Council in July 2022.
