Our Commissions

We rely on our two amazing commissions for input on Open Spaces and on general Sustainability. You can attend their meetings on the fourth Monday and Thursday of every month.

Community Events

Each year we organize a variety of community events to empower our community.


Information about the accomplishments we have achieved since 2007, along with our Municipal Sustainability Plan can be found on our Plans and Reports page.


The Sustainability Section currently employs four full time staff: the Sustainability Manager, two Sustainability Specialists, and a Volunteer and Event Coordinator. In addition, the section also employs a full time temporary Open Space Specialist, and two AmeriCorps Aides. You can contact specific Sustainability Section staff by viewing the staff directory.


The Sustainability Section along with the Environmental Management Section and Code Compliance Program, is funded by the Environmental Management (EM) Fee. The current EM fee is $4/month per City of Flagstaff utility bill.
