Three words that capture our proactive approach toward achieving a healthy balance with our City's environment. We take great pride in the natural beauty of the landscape in which Wooster has grown. There is a deep respect for the hard work Wooster's citizens have performed in building and enhancing our City. We accept the profound responsibility of ensuring that City operations use our natural resources efficiently and effectively, so as to impact the environment as benevolently as possible. We are proud to present some of the efforts our City departments & divisions have made towards being "green" in our City.
