What does "sustainability" mean for Adams County?

In April of 2010, the Adams County Board of County Commissioners passed the ‘Resolution to Approve Adams County Sustainability,’ which served as the initial guiding document for the Sustainable Adams County Program. The mission of this program is to ensure that Adams County stays committed to a sustainable future for its citizens and the environmental wellbeing of the county as a whole.

As a leader in the community, Adams County is increasingly integrating this approach into its business practices. To advance this approach the county continually identifies and adopts sustainable practices, initiatives, and policies that save tax dollars and support prosperous businesses; protect the health of employees and citizens; and assure clean land, air, and water.  

To learn more about our goals and progress please read the Sustainable Adams County 2030 Plan.

The county strives to serve the citizens of Adams County with innovation and integrity. For more information on ways your household or business can become more sustainable, please explore our resources pages on the left.
