A Healthy, Happy, and Sustainable City
A new, innovative city government office, the Office of Sustainability has proactively addressed pressing needs in the Providence community through fast-paced, hard work. The Office of Sustainability focuses on environmental issues that impact all aspects of Providence residents' lives, from transportation to stormwater runoff. Their sustainability action plan, Sustainable Providence, released in fall of 2014, was created through a collaborative process with community members, reflecting the strong role the Providece community has had in shaping a vision for local sustainability.
Sheila Dormody, the director of the Office of Sustainability, shares how local government is catalyzing change in Providence.
