Nothing beats living in or near a sustainable community – where like-minded people can contribute to, and reap the benefits of, low-impact living. From cycling and walking paths, to shared gardens and open green space, to clean-energy powered amenities, sustainable communities bring environmentally friendly behaviour to the forefront of a neighbourhood.

But developing sustainable communities also takes more than committed neighbours – public works also play a critical role in making it happen. Check out the infographic below to see how public works can contribute to the development of sustainable communities, and a few great examples of sustainable areas developed with help from public works.
