Sustainability Program
The Flagstaff Sustainability Program empowers Flagstaff to be resilient and resourceful.

In practice, a sustainable Flagstaff is a place where the social well-being of current and future citizens is supported by a vibrant economy and a self-renewing, healthy environment.

The City is committed to promoting municipal and community sustainability. As the central manager of these efforts the Sustainability Program develops and implements policies, projects and programming directly related to municipal and community-wide sustainability. The Program builds on the principals of economic, environmental, organizational and social sustainability. Planning, policies and programming support the integration of these principles throughout City operations while providing critical resources to the Flagstaff community.

            2014 Sustainable Building Resolution
On March 4, 2014 the Flagstaff City Council adopted a Resolution requiring all City-owned new construction and major renovation to achieve certification in one of the three sustainable building certification programs or high performance building code. This will help us protect natural resources, prevent waste, and reduce consumption in future construction. Read the Resolution.
