WHY A SUSTAINABILITY PLAN?

The City developed its first Sustainability Plan. The Sustainability Plan serves as a guide for City of Lafayette leadership, residents and businesses on sustainability practices, to improve the quality of life, promote good stewardship of the environment, and promote sound long-term financial management.

The Sustainability Plan contains goals, strategies, specific actions, and measurable targets on energy efficiency and renewable energy, waste reduction, and green and healthy buildings. Common themes across these topics are outreach and education and equity and inclusion.

While sustainability encompasses a broad range of topics, the city has chosen to focus its efforts and investment on a select few rather than dilute its resources on many. Further, this plan is aligned with other city planning efforts, including the Comprehensive Plan, Parks, Recreation, Open Space (PROS) Master Plan, and the Preservation Master Plan without duplicating efforts and topic areas.
