The City of Paramount was the recipient of the Beacon Award for Gold-Level Sustainability Best Practices presented by the Institute for Local Government (ILG) on October 17 in Long Beach, California.
A Silver-Level recipient for the 2018 Beacon Awards, the City has since forged ahead toward deeper learning and implementation of sustainability best practices within the Paramount community. Some of the efforts that elevated the City from silver to gold include the installation of EV chargers, developing a partnership with GRID Alternatives for home solar projects, completion of the Active Transportation Plan, and the revision of its industrial zoning code.
The Beacon Program provides a framework for local governments to share best practices that create healthier, more vibrant, and sustainable communities. The program honors voluntary efforts by local governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy, and adopt policies that promote sustainability.
The City is honored to receive this award and will continue striving toward a more sustainable future. For a complete list of the City’s Best Practice Activities, click/tap here.
