Other Environmental Programs in Peoria
Tree City USA
The city has been formally certified as a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Gaining and retaining Tree City USA recognition is an award to the tree workers, managers, volunteers, tree board members and others who work on behalf of better care of a community’s trees. Preference is sometimes given to Tree City USA communities over other communities when allocations of grant money are made for tree or forestry programs. Tree Cities are those that have a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, have a community forestry program with an annual budget of at least $2 per capita, and hold an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
Arizona State University's Global Institute of Sustainability
The city has partnered with the Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University to promote an understanding of growth and energy implications. The city participates in the ASU-sponsored Sustainable Cities Network, which provides Peoria with a forum to network with local professionals and foster community and regional sustainability through the exchange of findings and updates on the progress that cities are making in the areas of environmental protection, social equity and sustainable economic development.
