Resident Energy Survey The Sustainability Committee is looking to hear Monona's voice! The Resident Energy survey asks community members about their current investment and interest in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects at home and city-wide. Take the survey by clicking here, or on the picture at the top of the side bar! Physical copies of the survey can be found at City Hall, the Library, and Senior Center. 100% Clean Energy Resolution In March 2019, the City Council approved a resolution to pursue 100% clean energy to satisfy all municipal and community demand by 2040 and 2050, respectively. The resolution addresses issues of climate change and resiliency, along with the economic benefits of transitioning to renewables. Leaf Management: Adopt a Storm Drain Project Degrading leaves, left unattended during the fall season, produce phosphorous that contaminates our lakes. Preventing leaves from entering our storm drains keeps our water cleaner and healthier. To adopt your storm drain, visit our web page! Sustainability Committee In February 2018, the Ad Hoc Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee was formed! The committee is focused on developing more accessible and safer transportation corridors for walkers, bikers, and cars alike. See the calendar on the right for the upcoming community workshop on May 8th!
