The City of Clearwater is becoming more energy‐efficient, saving money and natural resources at the same time.  Help build a cleaner, greener and more sustainable Clearwater. Residents, businesspersons, and other interested stakeholders are invited to Clearwater Greenprint Open House #2.

The event will be held Tuesday, March 1, 2011 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Ross Norton Recreation Complex, 1426 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.

The purpose of Open House #2 is to unveil a draft version of Clearwater Greenprint and related Clearwater Comprehensive Plan amendments for community input. The event also will feature exhibitors, the city’s natural gas vehicle, electric cars, and door prizes for attendees. “Clearwater Greenprint allows residents and the city to partner and explore ways we can all be involved in building a more sustainable community,” said Michael Delk, Planning & Development Director. “We want to hear from those in the Clearwater community about how we can work together to promote a more sustainable city.”

Clearwater Greenprint is a community action plan that will guide city decision making over the next 20 years on topics such as energy‐efficient buildings and redevelopment, transportation choices, waste recycling, and local food production. The program will result in efficiency throughout the city, which will save residents and businesses money. Other anticipated program results include reduced carbon gases in the atmosphere and less dependence on oil.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
