Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sustainability
This document not only reports greenhouse gas levels in the city, but compares them to like cities, lays out pathways to sustainability, and outlines emission reduction strategies.
Bulk items, Holiday cooking oil, Christmas trees, lawn signs, chemical supplies and electronic items -- the City is recycling much more than the old standbys. Take a look at the new initiatives.
Community gardens, Trees for Tomorrow, a greenhouse gas inventory, updated codes, and water-conserving landscapes are just a few of the City's efforts.
Energy Efficiency Initiatives
Energy efficient rebates, City fleet hybrid vehicle studies, automated City Court processes, energy efficient streetlights... the list goes on.
