Mission

The Sustainable Norcross Commission is a seven-member citizen panel appointed by the City Council. Our purpose is to educate the citizens and advise the mayor and council regarding sustainability and environmental matters through development of a city sustainability plan and regular communication.

What We Do as a Sustainability Commission:
Sustainability refers to "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."*

Our initiative focuses on the areas of:

  • Green Building
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Green Power
  • Water Use Reduction and Efficiency
  • Trees and greenspace
  • Transportation and air quality
  • Recycling and waste reduction
  • Land use
  • Education
  • Innovation
  • Volunteerism

The commission assists the City in achieving and maintaining certification in the Green Communities program of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) as described on the ARC website

The plan commits Norcross to increasing accountability towards goals of Healthy People, Healthy Places, and Healthy Economy provides a roadmap by identifying the current status of conditions, where available, and identifies nationallyrecommended outcome metrics for tracking progress over time. At least five major initiatives are underway in Norcross, which will establish new baselines for the community around green space and tree canopy, housing affordability, active recreational opportunities, parks accessibility and acreage, and educational assets. These in addition to the many actions captured in this plan, set Norcross on a steady path towards an enhanced quality of life for all residents.
