[ARCHIVED] EPA to Conduct Local Community Workshop on Sustainability

The City of Steamboat Springs would like to invite the public to participate in a local workshop on sustainability on July 13th at 6:30pm. The workshop will include discussions on smart growth strategies designed to support the rural landscape, help existing places thrive, support local economic development, and create great new places. The workshop will be led by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and is funded by their Building Blocks for Sustainability program.

Steamboat Springs was one of 22 communities across the country to recently receive technical assistance from the Building Blocks program. The EPA is conducting one to two day workshops in each of these communities and is focusing on the individual challenges and opportunities related to growth in each area. According to the EPA, the program is designed to help communities “pursue development strategies that support smart growth and sustainability goals, and encourage local economic development.”

The public’s knowledge of Steamboat Springs will help make this event a success. Senior Planner Bob Keenan adds “It is a great opportunity for community members to engage with national experts in sustainability as it relates to our community.” The workshop will take place Monday July 13th at 6:30pm at Centennial Hall, 124 10th Street from 6:30pm until 8:00pm. To RSVP please contact Bob at bkeenan@steamboatsprings.net.
