The City of Coral Gables is working on a Sustainability Master Plan that will help create a roadmap for environmental and sustainable best practices citywide.
Working closely to advise Coral Gables officials on environmental issues that support a sustainable community is the mission of the city’s Green Task Force. The city has received several nominations from residents interested to serve, but more nominations are needed, especially from residents who have a professional planner background.
The 11-member task force will make recommendations regarding the environmental sustainability of city programs, services, equipment, and facilities, as well as assist in developing a plan for increasing environmental awareness and participation.
The task force will be comprised of a landscape architect, a planner, a person interested in historic preservation, an engineer, an architect, a member from the University of Miami, one from the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce and another from the Garden Club, as well as three city residents — two appointed by the city commission and one by the city manager.
If you are interested in participating in this group, submit your résumé, along with a cover letter specifying in which capacity you wish to serve, to the Office of the City Clerk, 405 Biltmore Way, Coral Gables, FL 33134. The information received will then be forwarded to the city commission and city manager for consideration. You must be a resident of Coral Gables to serve on the Green Task Force.
