Mission

The Sustainable Norcross Commission is a seven-member citizen panel appointed by the City Council. Our purpose is to educate the citizens and advise the mayor and council regarding sustainability and environmental matters through development of a measured sustainable city plan and regular communication.

What We Do as a Sustainability Commission:
Sustainability refers to "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."*

Our initiative focuses on the areas of:

  • Green building
  • Energy conservation
  • Water conservation
  • Trees and green space
  • Transportation and air quality
  • Recycling and waste reduction
  • Land use
  • Education
  • Volunteerism

The commission assists the City in certification of the Green Communities Certification issued by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) as described on the ARC website and further described on the City of Norcross Certification.

The weather's never too cold to warm up with a walk first thing in the morning.

You are cordially invited to join our growing 50 and older walking group. We have started meeting regularly on weekend mornings for an approx. 2 mile, 1 hour or so walk around historic Norcross. Starts at 9:00 am and Thrasher Park Pavilion.

If you're inclined to join us, we will make a one mile EASY LEVEL walking loop for those who'd like to warm up or complete the walk. For those who want to continue, we'll walk a moderate pace and terrain to complete the additional mile and half of so.

If you have questions, please contact Jolyn Barrow by text at 770-851-0571 or at susnorbp@gmail.com

Let's get walking!!!

Although Atlanta is in a beta project, becoming resilient should be a goal for all communities.

Resilient Atlanta
Resilient Atlanta is a city-wide initiative supported by the City of Atlanta Office of Sustainability, made possible by 100 Resilient Cities - Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation. Our goal is to have community conversations discussing the sudden shocks and everyday stresses that Atlantans face, and use that feedback to craft a resilience strategy addressing those issues.
