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. The Committee also supports community-led sustainability efforts and most recently, the Committee led the charge on addressing food insecurity in the City by establishing an independent Food Policy Council.
