What does "Sustainability" mean for the Borough?
Sustainability has many different definitions. For State College Borough, sustainability means using best practices to create lasting environmental, economic, societal and fiscal vitality as part of State College's overall mission to enhance the quality of life by fostering a safe, vibrant, diverse and sustainable community; by providing quality, innovative, cost-effective services; and by allocating resources efficiently with professionalism, integrity, transparency and accountability.
*Note: Borough Staff regularly receives sustainability training; including best practices in MS4 stormwater management.
All events hosted in the Municipal Building will have access to organics and recycling bins. Sponsored events, like Central PA Festival of the Arts, are working towards being zero-waste with the assistance of Borough. These are just a few examples of how the Borough continues to promote sustainability with their partners and events.
