Sustainability

History 

On December 17, 2007, the City Council unanimously approved a resolution adopting the Eco-Municipality Sustainable Guidelines for the City of Beloit. Those guidelines are:

  • Reduce dependence upon fossil fuels
  • Reduce dependence on chemicals and other manufactured substances that can accumulate in nature
  • Reduce dependence on activities that harm life-sustaining ecosystems
  • Meet the hierarchy of present and future human needs fairly and efficiently

This resolution supports the City of Beloit's goal of being an eco-municipality, a municipality that aspires to develop an ecologically, economically and socially healthy community for the long term.  A sustainable municipality meets basic economic, social, and security needs without undermining the natural resource base and the environmental quality. The goal of a sustainable organization is to have biological systems remain diverse and productive over time. 

Beloit, like many municipalities, increasingly supports initiatives to carry out sustainable development projects such as green building programs, open space preservation, public space beautification, recycling, and smart growth planning.  While these are all progress toward sustainable goals, most of our work is being done an in a project-by-project basis. The purpose of the eco-municipality program is to fully integrate these efforts throughout municipal government and the larger community. This page provides a link to useful information about the City’s progress in meeting the Eco-Municipality Guidelines.
