The mission of the Sustainability Advisory Board is to promote environmental protection, and advocate for policies which support sustainability (including environmental protection, waste reduction, recycling, energy conservation and natural resource conservation) in the City of Lawrence and to enhance the quality of life by enhancing the City’s efforts in these areas. 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.
Sustainability Advisory Board Meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Parks and Recreation Administration Building, 115 W 11th St.
