  • Consider the input of the public in the matter of sustainable practices and strategies for County operations and the community
  • Guide internal government operations and the community toward a more sustainable future through technical assistance and advice on energy conservation strategies, waste reduction and recycling, green building practices and products, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Assist in development of a sustainability plan including specific goals and strategies

The eleven members are to include a representative from:

  1. City of Tallahassee Utilities
