Where We Get Input

The Office of Sustainability gets its most direct input through two committees, one consisting of representatives of the City agencies most directly involved in sustainability work and the other consisting of community volunteers.

Sustainability Implementation Committee

The Sustainability Implementation Committee (SIC) meets monthly to 1.) provide updates on current sustainability efforts within each agency, 2.) evaluate the effectiveness of citywide sustainability initiatives to achieve established targets, 3) recommend modifications of the City’s sustainability goals to the Mayor, as needed, 4) coordinate on sustainability initiatives and 5) make recommendations to the Office of Sustainability for improvements to policies or programs.

The SIC is diverse and represents major agencies within the City.  The core membership currently consists of the following:

  • Matt Mueller (Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security)
  • Bob Finch (Parks and Recreation)
  • Kate Taft (General Services)
  • Rick Guerrero (Denver Sheriff Department)
  • Garry Hinderliter (Human Resources)
  • Scott Morrissey (Denver International Airport)
  • Derek Okubo (Agency for Human Rights and Community Partnerships)
  • Courtland Hyser (Community Planning and Development)
  • Paul Sobiech (Public Works)
  • Justin Sykes (Budget and Management Office)
  • Jeff Tejral (Denver Water)
  • Gregg Thomas (Environmental Health)
  • Jerry Tinianow (Office of Sustainability – Facilitator)
  • Julie Stern (Office of Economic Development)

Sustainability Advisory Council

The Office of Sustainability Advisory Council is a group of volunteers who assist the Office in promoting the sustainability of the City and County of Denver and its community. The Council has the following functions:

  • Provide advice and recommendations to the staff of Denver’s Office of Sustainability concerning the policies, programs, operations, budget and fundraising of the Office. The Council is not involved in policies, decisions and actions related to personnel.
  • Assist the staff in connecting with people and organizations that can provide advice, support and resources for the operation of the Office.
  • Initiate projects of its own that supplement or support the programs of the Office and that are consistent with the policies of the Office and of the City and County of Denver. The Advisory Council does not have the authority to speak for the City and County of Denver or its Office of Sustainability, or otherwise to commit Denver to any course of action or inaction, but it may submit comments to the Mayor, other City departments and agencies, and the City Council on matters of policy.
  • Promote and communicate the principles of sustainability broadly among the community and peer networks.

The Mayor appoints the members of the Council. Members serve for a term of two years and may thereafter be reappointed for successive terms without limitation at the discretion of the Mayor. Current members include:

  • Lindsay Arell
  • Jason Badgley
  • Gary Bernfeld
  • Devon Buckels
  • Garrett Christnacht
  • Jill Cooper
  • Alex Dane
  • Monique Dyers
  • Fanny Eddy
  • Enrique Elizondo
  • Rudy Gonzales
  • Monica Heintz
  • Pete Helseth
  • Jocelyn Hittle
  • Chris Jedd
  • Megan Jorgensen
  • Paul Kashmann
  • Jeff Lakey
  • Caitlin Leibert
  • Jeff Neuman-Lee
  • Hilda Nucete
  • Debbie Ortega
  • George Pond
  • Brenna Simmons-St.Onge
  • Casey Stock
  • Irene Vilar
  • Lauren Wilson

The Advisory Council will determine which, if any, commitees it would like to have at its first meeting.  People who are not members of the Council may serve on a committee.

Advisory Council meetings are open to the public. The Advisory Council meets the third Wednesday of even-numbered months (February, April, June, etc.) from 3:00-5pm in the Gates Room on the 5th floor of the Denver Central Library at 10 W 14th Ave Pkwy, Denver, CO 80204.
