Top executive: Tom Tait, Mayor
This year, the city of Anaheim received the Eco City Award as the greenest city in Orange County from the US Green Building Council.
Anaheim is moving forward with ambitious plans for a regional transportation center which, when it opens in 2014, will serve more than 10,000 commuters daily. Anaheim Public Utilities, the county’s only publicly-owned water-and-electric utility, recently dedicated a natural-gas power plant that emits virtually no particulate matter.
The city also has received a $350,000 grant from the California Natural Resource Agency for its Santa Ana River Trail Project, which will construct a tree-lined, multi-purpose trail encouraging pedestrian and bicycle transportation between the river and new transportation center.
Anaheim’s Convention Center has also proved to be a leader in environmentally conscious practices, becoming one of only 14 convention centers in the country to earn LEED certification from the US Green Building Council.
“I am proud of the many efforts throughout the city of Anaheim making it a ‘green” city,’ says Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait. “As we continue to focus on the stewardship of natural resources, our residents, businesses and guests will benefit.”
