The Delaware County Office of Sustainability continues to work to set innovative goals and impactful actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and set Delaware County on a path to a more sustainable future.
Over the past eight months, the County’s Office of Sustainability has been working with community advocates, partners, and experts to identify needs and define actions along six areas of focus: Natural Resources, Energy and Efficiencies, Transportation, Zero Waste, Climate Resiliency, and Health and Wellness.
All of this hard work has been fueling the creation of the County’s first-ever Sustainability Plan!
The County and the Office of Sustainability will be holding four public open houses—three in-person and one virtual—to gather feedback from the community about the goals, targets, and actions that have been drafted to-date. We want to hear from Delaware County residents
Attendees will hear a short presentation about the planning process will have the opportunity to view displays and materials regarding the six focus areas, and will be invited to provide their ideas, concerns, and suggestions to help shape the final version of the Sustainability Plan.
