Think Green! logoCity Initiatives - Green City Certification

The City of Clearwater earned statewide certification as a Green City in December 2009. The Florida Green Building Coalition administers the Green Local Government program and recognizes cities and counties around the state for outstanding environmental stewardship. Municipalities awarded with this distinction are recognized as more environmentally efficient than other municipalities. The designation focuses on improving environmental performance in areas such as energy, water, air, land, and waste. The Green Local Government standard includes meeting a comprehensive list of criteria encompassing environmental programs, initiatives, and events.

"This is a great accomplishment for the City of Clearwater and its residents," said Mayor Frank Hibbard, "and I am proud of the hard work that our residents, volunteers, and staff do on a continual basis to preserve Clearwater’s sustainability."
