Sustainable City

The goal of the city’s sustainability efforts is to provide a high quality of life for generations to come by striking a long-term balance between the social, economic and environmental factors that contribute to a sustainable community.  The City Council has adopted Sustainability Guiding Principles and Environmental Guiding Principles that articulate the framework for a sustainable community.

The Community Vision, adopted in 2010, calls for the city to build on existing sustainability initiatives to emerge as a leader in green development and sustainability.  Read the Envision Carlsbad working paper on sustainability.  

Working in partnership with the community, the city has implemented several cost-effective, efficient programs.
