Londonderry Township earns sustainability honor


Londonderry Township was awarded the bronze level of certification through the Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification program, according to a press release.

The certification, which is managed by the Pennsylvania Municipal League in partnership with Sustainable Pittsburgh, recognizes municipalities that are implementing sustainable policies and practices to advance community and regional prosperity and helping share best practices. It’s meant for municipalities working to save money, conserve resources and serve communities.

“We are delighted to see Londonderry Township distinguished among local governments that are leading the way in applying sustainability to both their operations and management as well as within the community,” said Anne McCollum, the league’s director of training and operations.

Londonderry was recognized for its energy efficiency, intergovernmental cooperation, recycling and waste reduction, fiscal controls, community design and land use, progress in health and wellness, and internal management and operations.

Township manager Steve Letavic said the township was proud to be recognized.

“The township has a long history of commitment to saving taxpayer dollars, using resources efficiently, and applying best practices in municipal government and community development. We are pleased to be recognized and be part of the regional community of good government,” Letavic said.
