Sustainability and Resiliency Committee
On March 28, 2005, the City Commission created a committee called the Renewable Energy and Conservation Committee (RECC). The RECC’s purpose was to make recommendations for increasing energy conservation and the use of renewable energy in City operations and facilities.
In November 2019, it was suggested that the RECC be reactivated and new appointees named to the committee. After an informational City Commission meeting and white paper presentation on November 13, 2020, it was recommended that the former Renewable Energy and Conservation Committee be renamed the Sustainability and Resiliency Committee (SRC). The role of the SRC would be to make recommendations to the City Commission for actions or policy adoptions related to climate resiliency, renewable energy, emissions reductions, energy efficiency and environmental stewardship.
Three public at-large appointments will be made after the completion of a public solicitation for interested persons. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Sustainability and Resiliency Committee, please fill out and submit this Statement of Interest form.
Applicants who have been chosen will be notified upon selection.
The Sustainability and Resiliency Committee is comprised of eleven members consisting of elected officials, City of Fargo administrator, various City of Fargo department heads and three members of the public. The committee also includes four ex-officio members: an Xcel Energy representative, a Cass County Electric Cooperative representative, a Fargo School District representative and a Fargo Park District representative.
