Saturday, March 22, 2014

On Thursday, March 13 at the Bullitt Center in Seattle, King County’s GreenTools Program awarded the City of Shoreline with a 2014 Outstanding Leadership in Green Building Award for its Government Leadership. The award was given at the fifth anniversary celebration of the Sustainable Cities Roundtable.

The King County GreenTools program provides technical assistance, grants, and hands-on training to help builders, residents, businesses, and governments create green projects efficiently and effectively throughout the County.

“I am extremely proud of Shoreline’s leadership role regionally on issues of sustainability,” stated Mayor Shari Winstead. “Working together is the only way we will be able to adequately address the impacts of climate change.”

The roundtable series is a monthly peer-to-peer, cross-jurisdictional conversation where government staff and elected officials come together to address the challenges in the built environment. Shoreline City staff have been active participants and leaders in the roundtable discussions since they began.

Since its inception, the Sustainable Cities Roundtable has resulted in the creation significant projects, including the Climate Collaboration and Regional Code Collaboration programs, where jurisdictions in the county align programming and policy initiatives to address the environmental challenges.
