Roosevelt, Seattle

The Roosevelt Neighborhood Association

Sustainability Group

The Sustainability Group is committed to leaving the earth better than we find it. The core group started with an initial few who worked on a priority-setting exercise for the Roosevelt Neighborhood. We initially focused on the natural environment and the redevelopment of the built environment in our neighborhood. We have grown to 40 or more individuals who seek a self-reliant community which embraces all aspects of sustainability (environmental, social, and economic) and works collaboratively with others in Seattle and the region.

The mission of the Roosevelt Sustainability Group is to take unique local action, creating and maintaining a vibrant and sustainable Roosevelt Neighborhood by:

  • Minimizing our carbon footprint
  • Making supportive, neighbor-to-neighbor connections in pursuit of sustainability
  • Networking with other neighborhood and regional groups to link people with common interests
  • Preserving and renewing the natural resources and beauty around us
  • Promoting a built environment which respects the planet
  • Supporting modes of transportation which contribute to sustainability
  • Educating ourselves about personal, household, and community actions that sustain us
  • Maximizing local food and energy production and sustainable businesses
  • Expressing a neighborhood voice for sustainability in public and private policy

The Roosevelt Sustainability Group meets monthly, usually on the second Tuesday at Calvary Christian Assembly Church.
