STAR Communities: A Case Study for Planners

STAR Communities: A Case Study for Planners

Beginning in 2008, the City of Las Vegas began a $70 million plus investment in projects and programs as a part of its Sustainable Energy Strategy. Now that much of the Strategy has been implemented and many of the goals have been met or exceeded, the City has been looking at next steps to continue its momentum of being a nationally recognized sustainable community. One way it is doing so is by joining STAR Communities – a nationwide framework and certification program for local sustainability. Over the past year, the City embarked on this program to assess goal areas that make up a sustainable community, including the Built Environment, Energy, the Economy and Jobs, Education, Equity, Health and Safety, and Natural Systems. Learn about STAR Communities as a tool and its importance for master plan or comprehensive plan efforts, and how the City of Las Vegas engaged other entities to assess important community metrics.
