Sustainability Commission

The Little Rock Sustainability Commission (LRSC) was established in 2008 as a Mayoral appointed task force. In September of 2018 the Board of Directors approved an ordinance to transition the Sustainability Commission from a task force to an official City commission. 

The Sustainability Commission was created for the purpose of studying sustainability and providing policy and program advice to the governing body of the City. The mission of the Commission is to help research and develop strategies and innovations to promote environmental and economic health and prosperity within the City without creating unnecessary competition between various aspects of development. The types of programs to be considered include, but are not limited to, the preservation and enhancement of green space; the reduction in City energy consumption; the development of community design recommendations and tools; the assurance of
access of healthy food sources; and, the construction of green buildings and other infrastructure constructed in such a manner as to provide utilitarian use while minimizing environmental impacts.
