City Council Supports City Operations Sustainability Plan

During the October 28, 2015 City Council Meeting, the Council unanimously expressed support for the City Operations Sustainability Plan and requested that the City Manager begin implementation.  The plan was developed by an inter-departmental task force, created at the direction of Council in 2014.  The purpose of the task force was to develop a plan that would:

  • reduce carbon emissions and other environmental and unhealthy impacts created by City operations;

  • coordinate sustainable practices across all City operations;

  • position the City as an organization receptive to innovation and leading practices in sustainability;

  •  improve the quality of life for residents; and,

  • conserve financial and capital resources using a long-term perspective on investment.

You can download the plan by clicking the link at left.  You can also download the Executive Summary, the Implementation Table, the Appendix, and the Resource Guide.  Please note that this plan is for City operations, and is not a community-wide sustainability plan.  

If you have comments or suggestions about the plan, feel free to email Bill Gardiner, Assistant City Manager, at, or call 240-487-3501.  As always, you may contact your Council members to provide comments and suggestions.
