In 2008, the Sustainable Shelby Plan was developed by 130 people participating in seven committees and a team of professional urban planners from the Memphis and Shelby County Division of Planning and Development (DPD). For four months, committees sifted through hundreds of ideas from sustainability best practices research. The final implementation plan resulted in a total of 151 strategies and was intended to be used as a living document to guide the region’s sustainable practices. The menu below provides information on the progress that has been made in implementing these strategies.
