The City of Louisville is working towards a more sustainable future for the natural environment and our community. This is guided by the current Sustainability Action Plan, developed by the Sustainability Advisory Board and adopted by City Council in November 2016.

To help implement this plan, the City has recently hired a part-time Sustainability Specialist (funded in part by a Boulder County grant) whose role includes the prioritization and communication of money- and energy-saving programs that will help Louisville residents and businesses thrive. If you have any ideas, concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out to the City’s Sustainability SpecialistLearn more about the City of Louisville's recent sustainability efforts here.

Below are resources for Louisville residents and businesses. (If you're looking for sustainability help for your business, don't miss the business-specific links at the bottom of the page!)
