The Environmental Programs group develops, implements and monitors City environmental and sustainability initiatives, including: climate action, stormwater management, solid waste management/waste diversion, energy conservation/efficiency, active transportation, and hazardous materials regulation. Program staff work closely with other departments to implement the City Council-adopted General Plan Sustainability Element, the Climate Action Plan 2.0, and the Pedestrian/Bicycle Plan. The group also provides support on the Capital Improvement Program and staffs the Sustainability Committee and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee. Many of these programs are regulated through legislation and permitting, including; AB 398 (Global Warming), Measure D (Solid Waste Diversion), Mandatory Recycling, and the Municipal Regional National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit.
