The City of Wichita is committed to creating a more sustainable future for our community.

We are moving toward this goal by consistently learning about, creating and adopting more sustainable processes internally, as well as by implementing shifts in the way we approach public services and outreach. These steps are intended to advance the City's overall environmental impact and to improve the quality of life for residents.
