The Dunwoody City Council unanimous approved this week a new Sustainability Plan prepared by the City’s Sustainability Committee. The new plan streamlines the 2014 version and updates the City’s vision of sustainability for the community.
The plan has five Sustainable Pillars of goals and actions for citizens, businesses, leaders and staff:
- Trees and Greenspace
- Water Quality
- Resource Efficiency
- Transportation and Air Quality
- Communications, Outreach and Wellness.
Last year, the City of Dunwoody was upgraded from Silver to Gold level under the Atlanta Regional Commission’s (ARC) Green Communities Program, a voluntary certification program that helps local governments implement measures that reduce environmental impacts and help make their communities healthier and more livable. The City’s new plan reflects a goal to reach Platinum, the top level.
