St. Petersburg Commitment

St. Petersburg is committed to delivering progressive, sustainable policies and effective programs to address city environmental, economic, and social challenges. Mayor Kriseman created the Office of Sustainability & Resiliency (OSR) in ­­­­­2015 to work with other executive offices, the City Council Health, Energy, Resiliency and Sustainability (HERS) Committee, city departments, businesses, and the community to develop innovative environmental solutions that foster equity, vibrant communities and shared prosperity.  See the Mayor's latest Executive Order  on Sustainability & Resiliency here.

The City of St. Petersburg has signed on the Tampa Bay Regional Resiliency Coalition.

History

Previous to creating the OSR, the city was recognized by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) as the first "Green City" in Florida in 2008.  Citizens and city staff compiled data and submitted an application to FGBC for review.
