Sustainability

At the City of Duncan, we understand that – like the weather here – change happens. The growth of our region, shifting economic opportunities, and environmental trends all affect our residents and shape our city. Duncan needs to respond to all of these changes to make sure that the city remains a healthy and vibrant place to live – a place our children will want to call home. Most of the emissions for our region are carbon dioxide from transportation, electricity, and heat. By committing to reduce our emissions we will need to shift some of our habits and build a city that supports things like public transit, energy efficient homes, and renewable energy production.
