Environmental Stewardship

The city has made significant progress in preserving and enhancing its natural environment. Most of this work has centered on the preservation of natural resources. In 2021, staff evaluated its environmental stewardship performance over the past 20 years and created an inventory of key accomplishments, events, projects, activities, programs and policies. The inventory is organized into seven categories, plus an eighth miscellaneous catch-all:

  • Public Engagement
  • Transportation and Development
  • Municipal Fleet
  • Energy
  • Trees and Vegetation
  • Drinking Water
  • Surface Water
  • Miscellaneous and/or Administrative

Within these categories, staff highlighted regional, business, and community partnerships; awards; and grants. Influential events that prompted significant city response are also included in the report.
