Sustainable Cuyahoga: A toolkit of recommended best practices for communities in Cuyahoga County


Download the Toolkit (PDF, 3 MB)

Cuyahoga County’s 59 communities are on the front lines of sustainability. They are responding directly to citizen demands for more choices and better performance on issues such as energy, transportation, local food, and solid waste. In response, the County's Department of Sustainability partnered with the GreenCityBlueLake Institute to put together a summary of some of the key sustainability issues communities are addressing today.

This toolkit — with useful recommendations in a concise format — is intended to help busy public officials learn about best practices, get help from local experts, and take action. It’s also intended to be a resource for citizens who want to work with local government officials to improve their communities.
