Project Description


The City of Tempe is one of the leading cities in the Valley with regards to sustainability. In order to keep Tempe a livable city, they have created a Sustainability Commission, there is a sustainability manager and they have a climate action plan. For the city, sustainability is not a one issue topic—there is an urban forestry plan, increase in bike lanes, evaluation of energy use for city buildings and more. AZSA supports the work that the City of Tempe is doing and is working to get other cities in the Valley to follow their lead.
