St. Louis Sustainable Neighborhood Toolkit
The Sustainable Neighborhood Toolkit is a living document created for the City of St. Louis as part of the Sustainable Neighborhood Initiative. The toolkit is a resource specific to the City of St. Louis; it is designed, to empower neighborhood residents, neighborhood organizations, schools, religious organizations, community groups, and others. They will use this toolkit to glean inspiration, obtain ideas, learn about potential resources, and become familiar with how to partner with the City in order to make neighborhoods more sustainable. The initial publication includes 27 tools researched and detailed to give readers specific instructions for how to pursue their projects in collaboration with the City and other local organizations supporting similar goals. Online, users can submit their own local examples of projects and success stories to continually grow the resources available to other users. The toolkit includes physical projects, social programs, and broader community initiatives.
The Sustainable Neighborhood Initiative was launched to build on the City’s greatest assets – its people and its neighborhoods – as identified by the City of St. Louis Sustainability Plan and the Mayor’s Sustainability Action Agenda.
Online, users can submit their own local examples of projects and success stories to continually grow the resources available to other users.
