Sustainable Seaside

Sustainable Seaside is a group of concerned local citizens working locally towards solutions to environmental challenges.

OUR GOAL:   To make the City of Seaside and adjacent areas a model of sustainability through innovative local actions which work to enhance our community.


Sustainable Seaside is currently focused on its 2018 Actions and Projects:

Community input from the online survey and the discussion on January 23 at our 2018 Annual Planning Meeting produced a 2018 plan that includes the following focus areas and projects.
