In 2011, a group of private and public sector citizens started meeting to talk about ways Marshall and its businesses and organizations could improve efficiency, save money and at the same time protect the environment. We presented to the Marshall City Council on March 27, 2012 to request that they pass a resolution for Marshall to move forward to become a Minnesota GreenStep City. The resolution passed unanimously and an official Marshall GreenStep Committee was formed. The committee meets monthly to share information and to work on various initiatives to help Marshall complete Minnesota GreenStep Best Practices.
- Marshall was officially recognized by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency as a “Step One GreenStep City” on April 26, 2012.
- A Marshall GreenStep Business Recognition program was established in January 2013.
- A “Step 2 GreenStep City Award” was presented to the City of Marshall on June 20, 2013.
- To reach our goal of becoming a “Step 3 GreenStep City” by 2016, Marshall must meet 16 of the 28 Best Practices.
