The purpose of the Sustainability Advisory Board (SAB) is to advise the Governing Body of the City of Lawrence, Kansas, regarding issues affecting sustainability, environmental protection, waste reduction, recycling, energy conservation and natural resource conservation, and environmental protection. SAB was originally formed as a Lawrence Recycling Board in 1989, and changed to the Lawrence Recycling and Resource Conservation Advisory Board in 1991 (with additional responsibilities given). By 2007, the Board again recognized a need for a broadened scope and mission and became the Sustainability Advisory Board under Ordinance No. 8101.
The Sustainability Advisory Board meeting agendas and minutes, board member contacts, and staff liaison contact information are available through the City of Lawrence iCompass platform.
