GREEN COLLEGE STATION
Sustainability and resource conservation has become a constant on the local government landscape. The International City County Management Association (ICMA) launched a major policy discussion designed to help local communities to successfully conceptualize and launch programs in response to the growing desire by local governments to address this global concern.
There is a clear case to be made for sustainability and conservation of resources in College Station. Our emphasis on the quality of life for the community demands that we aggressively work towards creating a culture in the community which embraces sustainability as its mantra. See our Green College Station White Paper for details.
The City of College Station is committed to building an Action Plan with measurable outcomes that will successfully implement the City Council policy on our Green College Station initiative. Click here to view an outline.
The Action Plan elements include: Energy, Waste Reduction, Water Conservation, Land Use & Green Building, Air Quality, and Transportation. The City has also enlisted a group of technical advisors, called the Technical Task Force to assist in the development and implementation of these elements.
