Hallandale Beach Sustainability Action Plan
Hallandale Beach has evolved from a small farming community to one of the fastest growing cities in Florida. In recent years, the City has sought balanced growth and preservation of what makes the community a destination – it’s beaches, waterways and parks, public infrastructure, a thriving business sector, and most of all the friendly, diverse, and forward-looking character of community members. The City’s Sustainability Action Plan will help make Hallandale Beach the vibrant, innovative and resilient community it should be – now and for future generations.
RS&H collected and analyzed a comprehensive dataset characterizing the City’s performance in nine dimensions: energy, water, fleet, waste, natural resources, land use and transportation, education and outreach, and funding. We benchmarked sustainability performance using over 500 discreet, nationwide sustainability criteria, performed a preliminary climate change vulnerability assessment, conducted cost benefit analysis for 27 projects, and developed 30 additional best management practices for future implementation.
The project portfolio is projected to generate a 10-year, $2.2 million net benefit to the City with a return on investment of 52%
