Last year, Mayor Borowski appointed a Sustainability Committee for the purpose of  reviewing and updating the city’s 2010 sustainability plan, These nine volunteers aim to create a new plan with tangible deliverables that will “reduce our carbon impacts, mitigate our vulnerability to floods, strengthen our local economy and create a more connected and welcoming community.” The plan addresses eight categories areas: Energy use, transportation, zero-waste, economic development, Communication and educational outreach, social vitality or sustainability, 

At this point, the committee is seeking input from the community on the current draft. The final draft will be submitted to the mayor/city council for approval and adoption.
