Sustainability

The Health & Environmental Control Department (HECD) provides leadership in administering the Sustainability Action Plan and maintaining the City's sustainable infrastructure.  HECD will communicate the City's sustainability goals, prioritize and direct targeted activities, monitor results, and periodically update the plan.  The HECD will develop policies and innovative programs, and participate in outreach and education to the City's businesses.  HECD will also coordinate with City Administration and other departments to appropriate the resources needed to maintain the City's sustainability infrastructure, and to incorporate sustainable goals, policies, ordinances and performance criteria into the City's General Plan, budgeting, purchasing, and reporting.
