The City of Largo is currently updating its Sustainability and Resilience Action Plan to develop, implement and maintain a comprehensive strategy to advance sustainability and resilience within both the organization and the community. The City intends to broadly expand the sustainability and resilience of both the organization and the community through a collaborative method that truly reflects the current and future conditions of the City. Empowering the community to actively drive the project process will lead to improvements that accurately portray the true measures that determine individual, neighborhood and community resilience and sustainability.

As part of the plan, the City has completed its first-ever organizational greenhouse gas (GHG) Inventory in partnership with ICLEI, Audubon FL, and USF.

Updates & Resources
Heavily dependent on an equity-focused and community-driven process, updating this plan involves relying on the leadership and strengths already present in our community, offering tools and resources, knowledge-sharing, developing shared pathways and actions, working together to implement and maintain the final project, and reflection points along the way.
Initiated in 2018, the City of Largo adopted a goal to power all municipal operations with at least 50 percent renewable energy by 2030 and 100 percent renewable energy by 2035. Learn about this initiative and more by exploring the current Largo Environmental Action Plan (LEAP). For accessibility support or assistance viewing this document, please contact [email protected].
Informed by previous City Commission and Executive Leadership Team Retreats, the Sustainability and Resilience Action Team (SRAT) has been created to develop, implement and maintain a comprehensive strategy to advance sustainability and resilience within both the organization and the community. This interdepartmental team will serve in an advisory capacity to the organization to help guide and coordinate sustainability and resilience efforts including the evaluation of current programs and policies to provide recommended improvements. This project team is leading the efforts to update LEAP.
