Millvale’s borough manager, Amy Rockwell, concurs that businesses interested in Millvale are also interested in the sustainable practices preached by the community. “Businesses seem to be focusing on sustainable practices which focus on long-term commitment to address community challenges,” writes Rockwell in an email. “Being a community-minded business allows for the business owners to shape and grow our communities. Millvale is at the forefront of the sustainable community practices.”
Rockwell says this focus on sustainability has garnered the borough a Certified Gold Community award from Sustainable Pennsylvania, an organization that encourages municipalities to make goals to save money, conserve resources, and encourage innovation.
