Sustainability Action Planning


The City launched its Sustainability Action Planning process at the end of May 2017! This Sustainability Action Plan (SAP) will lay out every sustainability initiative that the City will implement during the next 5 years. We have hired RS&H, Inc. in order to help develop a project-driven action plan focused on the following areas:
  • Resource Conservation and Efficiency
  • Materials Minimization and Recycling
  • Land Use and Transportation
  • Natural Resources and Resiliency
  • Education and Outreach
  • Funding and Evaluation 
An Interdepartmental Project Team, made up of staff members from multiple City departments, has been created in order to identify sustainability opportunities and barriers within each Department in the City. Furthermore, we will be seeking public input via two Community Workshops during late summer of 2017. The dates of the Workshops will be updated in this section of the website as soon as they are finalized. 

If you would like to take a deeper dive into the specifics of the Sustainability Action Plan please follow this link to the project Scope of Work. If you would like to discuss your ideas for the Plan prior to the Community Workshops please call 945-457-1617. We look forwrd to hearing from you!

Public Events and Workshops



We have partnered with the City of Hollywood in order to offer residents of both Cites a quarterly workshop series. 

The next Workshop is tentatively scheduled for July 2017. It will focus on Zero Waste and Recycling and offer residents the opportunity to learn and discuss how they can reduce the amount of "stuff" that they use in their every day lives. The workshop will also feature a DIY workshop where residents will learn how to make their own homemade deodorant, dish detergent, foaming hand soap and nut milk. Stay tuned for the date and registration link!

Be sure to take a look at the sea level rise awareness poles that are installed at various locations on the beach. These poles will give you information about what areas in Hallandale Beach and Broward County are vulnerable to sea level rise. They will also tell you about climate change in general and what you can do to help reduce your environmental impact.
