City staff on Tuesday night will outline its plan to revive and repurpose the city's green team that used to spearhead sustainability initiatives at the city ranging from a bike sharing program to composting at some city facilities.
In the coming months, city staff also is gathering all the data it can on the city's air quality, waste stream, water quality and energy use to establish baselines that will help guide future sustainability policies and operating decisions.
