Sustainability (STAR Communities)

The City of Steamboat Springs utilizes the STAR Community Rating System (STAR) as the framework for sustainability.  STAR was built by and for local governments. Local leaders use STAR to assess their sustainability, set targets for moving forward, and measure progress along the way. The intent of the rating system is to help communities identify, validate, and support implementation of best practices to improve sustainable community conditions.
