Neighborhoods, who’s the greenest of us all?

The city wants to reward neighborhoods that are working to improve sustainability.

Today on Earth Day, the city  is launching its new KC Green Neighborhood Recognition Program which will recognize registered neighborhoods that have broadly implemented sustainable practices.

More details from the city:

Registered neighborhoods may apply to be a KC Green Neighborhood between now and Monday, June 3 online. The city will award neighborhoods with a platinum, gold or silver designation based on the green/sustainable initiatives they have implemented. Winners will be announced in the fall.

Neighborhoods selected for recognition will receive neighborhood signage; acknowledgment of their efforts in city publications and on the city’s cable channel, KCCG-TV2; access to various sustainability workshops; and an eco-gift to help them continue their neighborhood’s progress toward sustainability.

“We are consistently impressed with the sustainable projects and activities so many Kansas City residents complete, such as adding energy efficient upgrades, opening a community garden or reusing vacant lots,” said Chief Environmental Officer Dennis Murphey. “The City would like to publicly recognize their efforts and assist them with their future green initiatives.”
