Sustainable City Operations

Sustainability Highlights

Spring 2019
Fall 2018

Fleet

The city purchases vehicles with the most efficient gas/diesel mileage appropriate for their use. As new technologies come to the market, the city will consider purchase of those vehicles. Currently, the city has 30 hybrid vehicles (Toyota Prius), three plug-in hybrids (Chevy Volt) and two electric motorcycles for use in city parks and open spaces.

Buildings

The city is constantly improving the energy efficiency of its buildings through HVAC upgrades and lighting projects. The city is in the process of developing a sustainable city building policy that will cover new construction, renovations and operations and maintenance.

Capital Improvement Projects

The city is starting to use sustainability criteria to evaluate and improve long-term capital projects. The Envision rating tool is currently being used to evaluate some Public Works projects.
