Climate Plan

Climate Plan


The City of St. Anthony Village is building on our history of sustainability leadership by developing a Climate Plan by the end of 2023.  The plan will focus on the next 1-5 years of implementation work in categories important to SAV, including water, waste, energy, and transportation. The plan will encompass City operations and our City’s entire footprint, including residents and businesses, so we will need everyone’s help to set meaningful goals and then accomplish the goals that we set through collaboration. The plan and implementation steps will be built from the history of leadership in SAV, through input from leaders, residents, business owners, and utilizing best practices in the industry such as what has worked in other similar communities. The Plan will provide implementable next steps and flexibility for adapting as changes occur.
