Resource Conservation

The City looks to protect natural resources and promote renewable sources by establishing three primary goals: 


  1. Significantly decrease overall community consumption, specifically the consumption of non-local, non-renewable, non-recyclable, and non-recycled materials, water, and energy and fuels. 
  2.  The City should take a leadership role in encouraging sustainable procurement, extended producer responsibility and should model innovative strategies to become a zero waste city. 
  3.  Within renewable limits, encourage the use of local, non-polluting, renewable and recycled resources (water, energy, and material resources).
