Slippery Rock named sustainable town
The “silver” certification means that Slippery Rock has been making progress on community design and land use, energy efficiency, health and wellness, intergovernmental cooperation, recycling and waste reduction, fiscal controls, and internal management and operations.
“We are delighted to see Slippery Rock borough distinguished among local governments that are leading the way in applying sustainability to both their operations and management as well as within the community,” said Anne McCollum, director of training and development for the Pennsylvania Municipal League.
The program serves as a mechanism for sharing best practices for creating a more sustainable Pennsylvania. The designated communities have been elevated to communities of choice to live, work and play, said Court Gould, executive director of Sustainable Pittsburgh.
