Environmental Goals

4VPIS, with assistance from the city’s Environmental Sustainability Council (ESC), developed five important goals for the city to improve environmental sustainability:

  • Increase tree canopy
  • Increase residential solid waste recycling
  • Reduce the release of greenhouse gases causing global warming
  • Increase green or “pervious” surfaces
  • Promote sustainable building standards

VPIS will be producing a report to measure are success in meeting these goals every few years.
