Sustainability

The City of Hopkinsville is a strong supporter of sustainability efforts at home and in the region. Recently, Hopkinsville and Christian County were certified as a Silver Level Community through the Valley Sustainable Communities Program initiated by TVA Economic Development and supported by Boyette Strategic Advisors.

A Sustainability Team formed as part of the certification process and continues to work toward green initiatives and goals such as:

  1. Offering single stream curbside recycling to residents.
  2. Developing a program to recognize businesses implementing or engaging in sustainable practices.
  3. Installing electric vehicle charging stations at key public locations such as the new Sudden Service Station rest area.
  4. Offering incentives to encourage sustainable construction in the city.
  5. Earning gold or platinum level certification.     


Residents can take advantage of the sustainable resources, tips and programs highlighted in the Hopkinsville-Christian County Community Guide to Sustainability.
