Burbank asks “Are You Green?”

Burbank asks “Are You Green?”
Survey results to assist in future communication efforts

BURBANK, Calif. (April 27, 2010) – The Sustainable Burbank Task Force is asking for public input on what citizens and businesses in the City are doing to be more environmentally responsible.

The short, seven question survey asks participants to highlight some of their current behaviors and practices when it comes to sustainability. Topics include driving, recycling habits and familiarity with the City’s already existing ‘green’ efforts.

It is available @ Burbank Library Green Pages and the City of Burbank.

“It’s essential to find out what people are actually doing to protect and preserve the environment,” says Burbank Vice-Mayor Anja Reinke. “We want to prioritize our efforts and goals and community input is very important.”

The Sustainable Burbank Task Force is a 15-member body intended to advise and make recommendations to the City Council on matters related to the implementation of the Sustainability Action Plan and to help engage the community by participating in various public education, outreach and promotional activities. The Sustainability Action Plan is the framework for the community to be environmentally proactive.

Results will be compiled in June and presented to both the Sustainable Burbank Task Force and the Burbank City Council.
