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
