Six Obtain Atlanta Regional Commission’s Green Communities Designation

The Atlanta Regional Commission designated six metro-Atlanta municipalities “Green Communities” for their efforts to reduce their “environmental footprint,” such as reducing energy and water consumption, cutting the amount of trash and air pollution produced or investing in solar panels and other means of producing “renewable” energy.

DeKalb and Douglas counties and the cities of Atlanta, Roswell, Fairburn and Suwanee – join Cobb County and the cities of Decatur and Alpharetta as “Green Communities”.

Roswell topped the list with a host of innovations, including solar-powered lighting in a dog park, a no-idle policy for city vehicles and a mandate that all new municipal buildings over 5,000 square feet be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a conservation rating system commonly known as “LEED.”
