Health, Energy, Resilience, And Sustainability Committee


The Health, Energy, Resilience, and Sustainability Committee (“HERS”) deliberates and makes recommendations on policies relating to St. Petersburg’s sustainability initiatives including energy efficiency, recycling, green infrastructure, alternative energy sources, climate, and environmental protections.
