Division Profile

The Public Works Landscape and Sustainability Division provides input and guidance for the development and maintenance of high-quality and efficiently maintained landscaping on City of Auburn property that is both sustainable and aesthetically pleasing. The division incorporates green infrastructure concepts and water quality management into the design and renovations of Auburn’s facilities while providing public properties that enhance the appearance and use of such facilities. It is a goal of the division to develop and maintain public rights-of-way, islands and public grounds that represent the City of Auburn brand.

The division also provides support to the City of Auburn’s Engineering Services and Planning departments in developing sustainable landscape into all properties by helping establish design guidance and implementation support in review of new projects. The City’s Urban Forestry Program is managed through this division, thus supporting the Green Infrastructure Master Plan and Urban Forestry Master Plan.
