What is Sustainability? 

Sustainability means balancing the needs of right now with the needs of our future residents and includes a focus on maximizing the economic, social, and environmental benefits of policies and programs. Sustainability helps make our community resilient by planning for future conditions and preparing for future risks. Sustainability recognizes that environmental quality is foundational to the well-being of the community.

Topics within the Sustainability Action Plan include:

  1. Resource use – How can the City, its residents, and its businesses use water and electricity more efficiently and use more sustainable energy sources?
  2. Waste – How can the City, its residents, and its businesses reduce the amount of waste produced and manage the rest better?
  3. Natural Environment – What are the opportunities in the City to improve air and water quality, provide more green space and habitat, and increase tree canopy?
  4. Built Environment – How can our buildings help meet environmental and social goals? How does the way the City is laid out improve transportation and energy use and support equity?
  5. Transportation – How can we move more people and do so in a manner that is safe, healthy, and cleaner for the environment?
  6. Climate Resiliency – What can the City do to reduce contributions to Climate Change and plan for future impacts?
