Support and Thanks to Sustainability Committee


The Provo Council and Mayor recently issued a joint resolution expressing appreciation and support for the Provo Sustainability and Natural Resource Committee.

The Provo Sustainability and Natural Resource Committee was originally established as part of the Vision 2030 process with the goal of helping implement plans to protect Provo’s natural resources, identify sustainability projects with public support, and help the Mayor and the Council realize those projects.

Provo Mayor John Curtis said thanks to the dedicated efforts of committee members, the committee enjoyed great success in promoting sustainability and wise use of natural resources in Provo, and embraced a scope larger than that outlined in Vision 2030.

“This committee has really flourished, and grown in an almost organic way,” Curtis said. “I feel it’s certainly appropriate for us to join together in a joint resolution expressing appreciation and support for that committee and recognizing their efforts and acknowledging that both the administration and the City Council support the great work of this committee.”

The resolution calls attention to the efforts of the Committee in promoting air quality initiatives, recycling, and appropriate land use planning .
