Case Studies of this Municipality
Our Green Action Plan is an initiative to promote and implement green practices throughout the Village. We have implemented several programs that provide guidelines for environmental sustainability, including the street tree program, the adopt-a-tree program, bringing pine trees back to Pinecrest program, landscape code changes for new developments, requirements that municipal buildings be constructed with environmentally friendly construction and a sustainable building program that provides incentives and rebates to new developments that implement “green” construction practices. These are just a few of the specific areas that have been implemented. Our Green Action Plan touches all activities undertaken by the Village, from employee retention to recycling programs to vehicular usage to parks maintenance.
