The City of Lewisville strives for leadership in sustainability through implementation of results-based policies and programs. We are focused on reducing our carbon footprint through encouraging sustainable resource management, with an emphasis on energy conservation and alternative energy programs. Participation in the SolSmart program has streamlined our permitting processes and removed potential barriers at the local level for residents and businesses seeking to incorporate solar energy. This aligns with our community emphasis on sustainability and directly reduces our impact on local emissions."Donna Barron, Lewisville City Manager
