The South Waterfront EcoDistrict, formed in 2010, aims to enhance sustainable initiatives at a neighborhood-level in the South Waterfront. Already a 'green' neighborhood, the South Waterfront has used the EcoDistrict platform, coordinated through PosI, as a roadmap for community building on a number of sustainable programs. To date, the EcoDistrict Steering Committee has brought neighborhood stakeholders together to understand and prioritize which areas of sustainability (buildings, infrastructure and/or community building) to focus attention on in the coming years.
The South Waterfront EcoDistrict's vision statement reads:
The South Waterfront EcoDistrict brings together neighbors, businesses and property owners to create a great place to live and work. Innovative built and natural infrastructure, green buildings, and a community of people strengthen the performance of this model sustainable neighborhood.
