The City Council adopted the City of Lake Oswego Sustainability Plan on November 20, 2007.
Developed by a steering committee of City staff from various departments, the Plan provides a coordinated approach for moving the City toward operating more sustainably. The Plan is guided by the following vision:
"A sustainable Lake Oswego is a community that meets the vital human needs of the present without compromising our ability to meet future needs. This requires consideration of both long-term and short-term effects on ecological, economic, and community systems. Operating sustainably means that we are leaving a legacy for the community of Lake Oswego and the planet."
Reports and presentations about the City's progress toward achieving the milestones and goals outlined in the Plan can be found here.
