About Us
StaffFlagstaff Sustainability Program
The Flagstaff Sustainability Program prioritizes the development and implementation of policies and programming directly related to municipal and community-wide sustainability. Planning, policy development and programming supports the integration of sustainability principles throughout City operations while providing critical resources that promote City Council goals.

Initiated in 2007, the program focuses on developing and implementing community wide sustainability and climate management initiatives that make sense for Flagstaff’s economy, community and environment. The Flagstaff Sustainability Program works to foster interdepartmental efforts to integrate and promote sustainability in municipal operations.

The Sustainability Program currently employs three full time staff comprised of one Sustainability Manager and two Sustainability Specialists as well as a grant funded temporary full time employee Sustainability Assistant. The program partners with local educational institutions and AmeriCorps to provide students and recent graduates with professional development opportunities. Currently two Youth in Action, AmeriCorps Members are working with the program.

Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or comments regarding the Flagstaff Sustainability Program. You can also contact specific Sustainability Program staff by reviewing the Sustainability and Environmental Program Staff directory.

Budget
For fiscal year 2012, the Flagstaff Sustainability Program requested $82,210 for contractual and commodities; the majority of which is dedicated to community education and outreach initiatives.

Program Staff continues to identify and secure funding for community initiatives. The Flagstaff Sustainability Program’s residential energy efficiency programming is supported by $359,878 in grant contributions.

The current Environmental Management (EM) Fee is $2 per month per City of Flagstaff utility bill. The current EM Fee revenue funds a portion of the Brownfield Land Recycling Program and the Sustainability & Environmental Management Section (SEMS) programs, which include Environmental Management, Conservation and Sustainability. The remaining funding for these programs comes from part of the Environmental Services Enterprise Fund (e.g., landfill fees). More information on the Environmental Management Fee is available.
