Scott County Green Team

EarthCities and counties across the nation are examining ways to become more sustainable.

In plans across America, there is a triple bottom line that seeks to balance the use of critical resources with effects on the environment, economy, and society. These effects should benefit rather than impair future generations. Education and funding resources are founding elements for creating sustainable practices. In the Scott County planning process, sustainability is defined as:

"To care for the air, land, soil, water, energy and people in Scott County by balancing environmental, economic and social needs. Our footprints on the Earth should be light so that future generations will be able to live in a county better than the one we live in today."

The Scott County Green Team consists of county and state representatives.
