Raimi + Associates led a team of consultants in the preparation of the award-winning Sustainability Plan for the City of Palm Springs. The Sustainability Plan is a roadmap that includes a broad vision and action steps that work towards an economically prosperous, socially just, culturally rich, and environmentally sound future. The plan creates a comprehensive approach to addressing sustainability and climate issues, identifying nearterm actions the City should take, performance measures to track progress, a web-based active transportation tool, and actions that the community can take to live healthier and more sustainable lifestyles. The Sustainability Plan was developed through a collaborative partnership with City’s Department of Sustainability and Recycling, City Department heads and staff, the Sustainability Commission, and the community.
