What is the Toolkit?   How do I Use the Toolkit?
Brought to you by the Madison County Council of Governments, the Community Toolkit is a guide to sustainable living. Feel free to explore a section of the document interactively on each page, or simply download the full PDF to view or print. Below you will find the tools necessary for you to view/print PDFs and explore the interactive documents.   The Toolkit is divided into the three main sections of sustainability; environment, equity, and economics. Within the environment and equity are various topics pertaining to science, technology, community amenities, and planning and development. Each of the topics is explained using a general definition as well as specific tools, steps, resources and examples. The economic section includes a cost evaluation of the topics found in the environment and the equity sections. The Toolkit is meant to read like a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ section of a website or an encyclopedia. Users may browse the table of contents or index to find topics that are of particular interest or simply read through an entire section.
