LRSC was established in 2008 as a Mayoral appointed task force. In September of 2018 the Board of Directors approved an ordinance to transition the Sustainability Commission from a task force to an official City commission.
“I am very excited for the opportunity to be the Vice Chair of the commission,” Zuccardi said. “I have been part of the commission for about three years now and during this time, we have worked hard to have a more beautiful and sustainable Little Rock. I hope my new role helps me make a bigger and more meaningful impact in the city I so dearly love.”
The Sustainability Commission was created for the purpose of studying sustainability and providing policy and program advice to the governing body of the city. The mission of the Sustainability Commission is to help research and develop strategies and innovations to promote environmental and economic health and prosperity within the city without creating unnecessary competition between various aspects of development.
Last summer, Zuccardi traveled to Bali, Indonesia, to work with Avani Eco, an organization with the vision to become the nation’s leading pioneer in sustainable alternatives, offering eco-friendly packaging products ranging from shopping bags, F&B packaging, and hotel amenities.
