Linn County's first internal sustainability plan provides a new opportunity to coordinate sustainability efforts across Linn County departments. This plan is intended to be used for internal focus. The goals, objectives, and action steps are ones that County staff and elected officials have more direct control over. By bringing together existing best practices and identifying areas of opportunity for the County to meet its emission reduction goals, the hope is to cultivate more resilient and economically sound communities.
The Linn County Sustainability Department creates an annual Year in Review to summarize and highlight the work done each calendar year. The department continues its work to further Linn County's commitment to environmental sustainability and resource protection and work towards a more environmentally just future.
