In March 2009, Miami-Dade County was selected as one of three communities nationwide to participate in a sustainability planning toolkit pilot program through ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability. Miami-Dade's plan will be used as a model by local communities worldwide.
For years, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners and County departments have been implementing policies and initiatives to address climate change and other important sustainability issues. Many municipalities in Miami-Dade County have made sustainability a priority as well, and have existing plans or are developing plans.
Through this planning process, we learned from our partners, who have strong initiatives to build upon. Now is the time to elevate and intensify our efforts, better coordinate our plans and resources and raise awareness in our community for a sustainable future. GreenPrint is the framework to integrate environmental, social and economic benefits in the policy decisions we make, programs and initiatives we implement and services Miami-Dade County delivers.
GreenPrint is not a Miami-Dade County government plan. It is a community plan, developed and implemented by all.
We welcome you to read GreenPrint and share your comments about the plan.
