In 2016, Wheatland County made a formal commitment to environmental stewardship through the adoption of an Environmental Policy; recognizing the importance of protecting the environment for the benefit and enjoyment of our residents, businesses, and visitors. Accepting responsibility for leadership in accountability, for actions that may impact the environment, Wheatland County committed to:
- Balancing the environment with the social and economic needs of the community;
- Leading by example;
- Understanding and responding to the specific environmental needs of our residents and natural environment; and
- Engaging and enabling stakeholders to protect the value that our natural environment provides.
A copy of General Policy 3.25, Environmental Policy, is available here.
