Expediting Local Government Access to Sustainability Practices
Wherever there are local governments inclined to make progress towards sustainability, best-practices can be expedited by providing necessary information about how to get started. Lacking comprehensive information about start-up results in tremendous amounts of wasted time and effort as hundreds of local governments all try to reinvent the same basic ideas.

The Problem this Project Addresses
The cost to local governments of pursuing and adopting more sustainable practices of call kinds is unnecessarily high because necessary information, such as board or council Resolutions, Ordinances, implementation plans, case studies, and more are not better organized and are less than readily available to the thousands of citizens and local officials who need them. This project will systematically collect, curate, and disseminate such information to those who are struggling with ideas and questions about how to proceed.
