Sustainable Lincoln

Blue Ribbon Leadership Team

The Sustainable Lincoln Blue Ribbon Leadership Team includes a broad cross-section of the community with interests in the environment, sustainable planning, and the social and economic future of Lincoln. Knowing that what matters is what's measured, the Blue Ribbon Leadership Team is charged with reviewing recommendations for measurable community-wide sustainability indicator targets in the following areas: air, water, land, waste, transportation, energy, and community. The Blue Ribbon Leadership Team reviews proposed indicator targets as a group, and then validates, amends, or proposes alternatives. The end result will be a first draft of what all expect will be a highly useful, regularly updated planning and accountability tool on what is right for Lincoln.
