Sequim is a beautiful place to live, work and recreate ~ and everyone wants to keep it that way!
Three of six priorities adopted by Sequim City Council for 2018-19 involved improving the sustainability of City operations and mitigating our impact on the climate, responding to prior resolutions R2012-11 and R2016-16. These Council priorities state the following:
The first progress report on sustainability actions by staff was presented to Council in December 2018 and it was clear that such values are indeed maintained at the individual level as well as the departmental level. Public Works staff is leading the tracking effort and prepared a summary of activities for 2016-2018 and details in a 5-page table.
Following are several notable examples of recent and ongoing programs and services:
Resolution 2012-11: Establishing a Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Policy
Resolution 2016-16: Adopting Policies that Improve the City’s Sustainability and Resiliency
