GREENSTEP GROUP

Group Leaders: Ann Martin & Sheila Maybanks

Stillwater has been designated a Minnesota GreenStep City, thanks in part to the efforts of the Sustainable Stillwater GreenStep team. The GreenStep program has guidelines to help cities achieve resiliency, sustainability, and better quality of life for its citizens.

 

OUR GOALS

Stillwater has been a GreenStep City since 2018.

The GreenStep Group is made up of citizen activists who work with city officials to coordinate zoning laws with the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. They pay particular attention to increasing affordable housing, preserving green spaces, and promoting native plantings.

We also aim to increase our urban canopy and bird habitat.

Increasing recycling and introduction of composting for residents and businesses is a goal for 2020.

We encourage sustainable purchasing practices by the city, businesses, and institutions.
