Being “green” has never been more important than it is today. People want to live in forward-thinking communities, places that understand the value of conserving natural resources and the concept of environmental stewardship. The Clean and Green initiative is designed to challenge to businesses, civic organizations, and neighborhoods to come together and get involved in cleaning up their properties and protecting our environment. It also includes expectations and goals for the appearance and condition of our community that have become part of our standards as a city. Join us in celebrating the richness of Roanoke’s beauty and environment by thinking “green and clean,” and acting as good stewards of the place we call home.
