Your neighborhood. Your ideas. Your home.
The Sustainable Neighborhoods Program gives residents the opportunity to become active partners in building vibrant and sustainable communities. Is your neighborhood ready to become a Certified Sustainable Neighborhood?
The Sustainable Neighborhoods Program was created by the City of Lakewood, Colo. as a neighborhood-level implementation tool for enhancing community sustainability. Currently, the City has five neighborhoods in the program.
The Department of Environmental Health at the City and County of Denver is pleased to participate in the Sustainable Neighborhood Network. This program, founded by Lakewood, will allow Denver neighborhoods to deepen their sustainability efforts and get support and recognition from the City. Visit the Denver Sustainable Neighborhoods page for more information on the program and how to apply.
