Sustain

The City’s Sustainability Program was established in 2007 to develop, coordinate, and support city-wide sustainability goals and initiatives. This office helps foster a culture of sustainability by providing presentations on how you can lead a more sustainable lifestyle and by connecting you with local businesses and organizations that specialize in sustainable enterprises.

Ultimately, we are looking to efficiently preserve our resources while saving taxpayer dollars.
