Sustainability Plan


The City of Lakewood is developing its first Sustainability Plan to guide the community in strengthening and integrating its social fabric, local economy, and natural environment Over the past year, the City conducted research, collaborated across City departments, and hosted a series of work groups to develop specific sustainability goals and strategies.


The Sustainability Plan will act as a guiding document that informs policy decisions by City Council and prioritizes projects and resource use by City of Lakewood staff. The plan will measure progress towards community sustainability goals through measurable targets and sustainability indicators.
