And the Alliance for Sustainability

With each of our city commissions doing so much great work this summer helping your cities include resilience goals and strategies (energy, water, active living, etc.) in your city’s comp plan updates, the volunteers from Citizens for Sustainability are inviting everyone to meet up to share your progress and next steps

Energy Planning Templates are now available for Cities 

Minnesota’s Local Government Project for Energy Planning (LoGoPEP) builds upon existing efforts to engage local governments in committing actionable strategies for energy and greenhouse gas emissions. LoGoPEP has developed draft Energy Planning Guide Book and a draft Energy Planning Workbook that, when completed, will be available to all Minnesota cities wishing to include energy in their planning documents. Download them at
