GreenStep Cities
The City of Elk River and the Energy City Commission have worked hard to achieve a Level 4 in theLogo_thumb.png GreenStep Cities program. The voluntary program was created by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and its partners in 2010. Since then, the City of Elk River has worked on 26 of the 29 total Best Practices. The city is continually looking to achieve more tasks and increase their “star level” in order to achieve our sustainability and quality-of-life goals which align with the city and Energy City action plans.

Residents can help the city achieve a higher level by being good stewards of water and energy usage, reducing solid waste, purchasing or installing renewable energy, and using smart transportation.
