Durango is a Reporting STAR Community


Durango is on the path to becoming a STAR Certified Community to showcase all of our sustainability efforts as a municipality and community. 

STAR Communities is a nonprofit organization that works to evaluate, improve and certify sustainable communities. STAR helps cities achieve a healthy environment, a strong economy and wellbeing for their residents. 

Sustainability means different things to different people, so STAR provides a clear, data-driven approach to assessing the communities' sustainability efforts. The STAR framework helps communities assess their efforts in seven key areas and define sustainability for themselves. 

Durango is proud to be on the path to certification and was selected in the Leadership STAR Community program for 2016 along with Columbia, MO; Kansas City, MO; Lawrence and Douglas County, KS; Marathon, FL; and St. Petersburg, FL. 100 cities and towns across America are already certified or in the process of certification and Durango is proud to join these cities.
