The City of Roseville is committed to protecting the environment. Earlier in 2014, Roseville approved a resolution to become one of Minnesota’s GreenStep Cities.
This program is designed to help Roseville achieve environmental sustainability goals by implementing 28 best practices. These best practices are organized into the categories of buildings and lighting, land use, transportation, environmental management, and economic and community development.
The best practices encourage innovation and focus on cost savings and energy use reduction. Roseville has achieved 17 of the 28 best practices and is in progress or researching ways to achieve the remaining practices.
Tailored to all Minnesota cities, GreenStep Cities grew out of a report to the 2009 Legislature and has been developed by the MN Pollution Control Agency, MN Office of Energy Security, the League of MN Cities, the Clean Energy Resource Teams, the Great Plains Institute, the Izaak Walton League-MN and the Urban Land Institute-MN.
