Golden Valley Is A GreenStep City

The City of Golden Valley became Minnesota’s 105th GreenStep City in June 2016. GreenStep Cities is a free, voluntary program facilitated by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency that evaluates cities’ progress towards sustainability goals.

As one of the participating cities, Golden Valley is joining in the effort to make Minnesota more sustainable and resilient. Actions that have been taken and recorded within the program focus on a wide range of topics, from installing efficient outdoor lighting and traffic signals to implementing best practices for natural resource management.
