Living City

Environmental protection and climate action have long been a part of the City's core values, policies, and programs. From urban planning, building design and infrastructure, and habitat restoration to corporate practices, municipal operations, and community outreach, we're continually looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. Living City

To build a community that's resilient to future challenges, we must not only lead by example, but provide opportunities for residents and businesses to play a role in building a more sustainable community. Living City represents all the City's environmental sustainability initiatives, how our City is doing, and what we can all do to ensure a sustainable community for future generations. It's about each of us doing our part and respecting our environment as we co-exist to create a Living City. For more information, see the Living City Summary Report (PDF).
