Sustainability

The concept of sustainable development was most classically defined by the World Commission on Environment and Development in 1987 as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."  Since then, the term "Sustainability" has been defined in varying ways, but normally centers on 3 core values – Economy, Society, and Environment.  

For the City of Rogers, working towards sustainability means operating more efficiently, saving money and energy, reducing pollution, and planning for the future.  The City's Public Works department has already taken a number of steps to become more sustainable and is constantly looking for new ways to improve efficiency while benefiting residents, the local economy, and environmental resources.
