Goals to sustain region announced
By Nomee Landis
August 28, 2003

Goals aimed at sustaining Fort Bragg's mission and the region's vitality
were unveiled during a conference Wednesday at the Officers' Club.

The goals - related to land use, air quality, water, solid waste and
energy - will help guide dozens of people working to implement the
Sustainable Sandhills initiative.

Fort Bragg's leadership, along with Bill Ross, the secretary of the N.C.
Department of Environment and Natural Resources, introduced the
initiative in February. Its purpose is to help solve environmental
problems, such as air pollution, that could ultimately hurt training on
Fort Bragg and economic development in the region.

The concept of sustainability moves beyond the region, though. It is an
ideal that involves the use of natural resources without exhausting

Ross said Wednesday ''it is the most important issue of our time." The
world is being transformed, he said. More and more people are using or
abusing more of the earth's resources at a faster rate than at any other
time in history. Doing so is unsustainable.
