About Us 

Formed as a division within the Planning Department in 2012, the Sustainability Division works collaboratively with every city department and the Lakewood community to create a vibrant, sustainable Lakewood.

Our division is committed to creating a culture where community leaders, businesses and residents recognize that the vibrancy of our environmental, social and economic systems are interdependent and work together to ensure that Lakewood remains a healthy, thriving place for generations to come.
