The City of Chamblee was recognized by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) as a Green Community Bronze level. The Green Communities Program is a voluntary certification program that helps local governments implement measures that will reduce their environmental impact.
All winners earned certification points for sustainable measures implemented in their communities. Some measures that earned the City of Chamblee certification points include:
In metro Atlanta, 20 local governments — 13 cities and seven counties – are currently certified under the ARC Green Communities program. This is the first program in the country to promote sustainability through a green certification program for local governments.
“This was our first year to apply for and be certified as a Green Community,” said Chamblee Mayor Eric Clarkson. “We are thrilled with this honor, and we hope to go further in the program next year as we work to be great stewards of our environment.”
“We applaud these local governments for reducing their environmental impact,” said ARC chairman Kerry Armstrong. “As they do so, they lead the way in creating a greener and more livable region.”
