Village Receives Sustainability Practices Award

Earlier this week, the Village of Downers Grove was recognized with the 2016 Sustainability Practices Award by the Suburban Branch of the American Public Works Association. The award recognizes the commitment and practices the Village has taken to make sustainable practices a cornerstone of the community. The Village has used input from the Environmental Concerns Commission, as well as encouragement from management to aid in directing the organization towards these green initiatives.

Examples of these initiatives include sustainable construction practices, recycling, green fleet practices, water conservation efforts, stormwater pollution prevention, and energy conservation.
