Grand Prairie’s Green History
The City of Grand Prairie has a history of attracting people by its rich natural resources. Early settlers were drawn to Grand Prairie’s fertile soil, vast prairies, and generous water supply. These pioneers understood the importance of managing these resources responsibly as their livelihoods depended on it. Today, citizens continue to enjoy the natural resources offered by this beautiful city.
It is crucial to the health of our environment that we remain mindful of how we use these resources. A GREEN lifestyle includes looking at everything through an objective eye with a goal of preserving and sustaining our natural resources. Examples of conservation efforts range from home improvements to travel, from motorized equipment to the foods we buy, from watering your yard according to water preservation guidelines to using battery powered leaf blowers and hedge trimmers, from recycling to repairing rather than throwing items away.
The bottom line is that preserving the environment, and in many cases mitigating damage done, is an individual issue. Whether you are retired, living on a fixed income, a major developer, utility company, or a commercial business, we encourage you to use this Web site to make informed decisions that will benefit the environment and the quality of life for all citizens of our City.
