The City of Miami Beach is taking steps to address growing concerns regarding environmental impacts and change in the community. the City's Ad-hoc Green Committee was formed in July 2007, which provided a community forum to discuss envronmental issues within the city. In 2008, the City Commission added a new Key Intended Outcome (KIO) to the City's Strategic Plan-to enhance the environmental sustainability of the community. Then in the spring of 2009, the city formalized the Ad-Hoc Green Committee by permanently establishing the Sustainability Committee and codifying Chapter 100: Sustainability in the City Code, which is dedicated to sustainable initiatives.
The role of the Miami Beach Sustainability Committee is to identify and promote policies and practices within the City to help achieve a sustainable environment. We encourage environmental awareness among our residents, employees and business partners to help accomplish our goal of keeping Miami Beach Green.
