The mission of the Leon County Office of Sustainability is to promote adoption of practices that improve our quality of life, protect our natural environment, and strengthen our economy, both within County government and within the community at large.
On February 1, 2009, the Leon County Office of Sustainability was established and a full-time Sustainability Coordinator position created to fulfill Leon County’s ongoing commitment to seek out and apply more sustainable practices day-to-day in how we carry out County business. Since its establishment, the Office has worked to implement sustainable practices through innovative leadership and cooperative partnerships within Leon County operations and our community. In 2012, the Office of Resource Stewardship was established to provide leadership and coordination of services among the Office of Sustainability, the Division of Solid Waste, and Cooperative Extension. Directly or indirectly, all Departments and Divisions within the County contribute to our goals of pursuing a sustainable future. The County’s sustainability efforts are implemented under the guidance of Maggie Theriot, Director of Resource Stewardship, and Kathryn Ziewitz, Sustainability Coordinator.
