The City of Manassas has partnered with George Mason University (GMU) to develop and implement its first Sustainability Plan. The plan will help the City reduce emissions and help guide future policies and projects. Sustainability has been identified in the City’s Comprehensive Plan as a priority, and this plan will help make the City’s goal of becoming more environmentally conscious a reality.

The City of Manassas Sustainability Plan will support the region’s goal of 50 percent greenhouse gas emission reductions from 2005 levels by 2030 and an 80 percent reduction by 2050. Phase 1 of the Sustainability Plan focuses on air quality and emissions including energy use and production, solid waste, and transportation. Phase 2 will take a more holistic view of sustainability and will cover topics such as vegetation and tree canopy, green infrastructure, water, noise and light pollution, and public health.
