The city of Clearwater's Greenprint sustainability plan was formed through the collaborative help of many residents, businesses and city staff members. Clearwater Greenprint's vision is to make Clearwater a vibrant community for everyone who lives here now and for generations to come.
Clearwater Greenprint includes real strategies that the city, businesses and local residents can bring into their daily lives to create a sustainable community. These strategies help create a sustainable community by making buildings and transportation systems more energy-efficient, maintaining a healthy local economy, creating “green” jobs, reducing waste, and encouraging shoppers and restaurants to buy locally grown foods.
Positive change is possible. And maybe it’s not from one person doing a big thing but from many people doing small things. Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, stated, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Clearwater Greenprint invites you to find your “single step” and run with it. Everyone is essential to creating a sustainable city. Together, we can go far.
