Office of Sustainability
Osceola County established the Office of Sustainability in October 2021 to organize, guide, and coordinate sustainability initiatives within County government and throughout the County.
Developed in 2012, this plan set goals for instituting a sustainability program at the County. Progress has been made in a number of areas – establishing the Sustainability Office will ensure continued implementation of this Plan.
Adopted by the County in 2017, this plan addresses key issues facing the County, include fiscal sustainability, lack of affordable housing, homelessness, and jobs-housing balance.
In 2020, the County adopted a new element in the Comprehensive Plan to update and expand on the 2012 SAP. The Element includes goals, objectives, and policies (GOPs) designed to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and impacts of climate change. These GOPs are organized by the following over-arching objectives: planning and management; shifting transportation demand; increasing energy efficiency; waste reduction and recycling; and enhancing ecological resilience.
