In Westminster, the environment is a priority, and it shows in clean streets, beautifully manicured parks and trails, and acres of open space.
City programs secure pure air, water and land, making Westminster one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the area.
Westminster's commitment to the environment doesn't stop at public notification. Westminster's commitment to environmental protection includes the award-winning Environmental Services section within Risk Management, whose charge is to ensure the city's operational compliance with environmental regulatory requirements.
The General Services Department also serves as staff liaison to the city's Green Team who partners with the Environmental Advisory Board, an all-volunteer board, to educate the community.
