The NEAT Board of Directors, along with staff, worked with Urban Systems to develop a new strategic plan. We are thrilled with the new direction that NEAT is heading. Rest assured, the core education and community outreach that built NEAT into the organization that it is, are still in place, but we’ve increased our focus on sustainable communities to include all three pillars, not just the environment. What does this mean? It means we can work on broader initiatives that have the ability to have a much deeper impact in our community. 

As part of this robust conversation about our services, our vision and mission have been updated to:


As a valued organization, we lead by example, increase awareness, educate, inspire and empower communities.


Inspiring healthy, vibrant and connected communities to practice sustainable daily actions.
