Program Overview

Mom and son gardeningIntended to encourage direct citizen action, the Sustainable Neighborhood Program provides support to neighborhoods in order to assist citizens in enhancing neighborhood sustainability and reducing the environmental footprint of residents. Neighborhoods in the certification program earn credits for participation and for achieving project goals.

In 2013, the City of Lakewood was approached by several regional sustainability organizations and nearby communities who expressed interested in the program. As a result the City of Lakewood developed the Sustainable Neighborhood Network as a vehicle to share the program with interested communities.
