Chattanooga Chosen to Test the STAR Community Index

Reporting:  Rabbit Zielke

Chattanooga was chosen as one of nine communities across America to beta test the STAR Community Index, a system of measurement and data management to monitor sustainability directives.  The STAR Community Index will provide software and implementation strategies to help decision makers get the most out of available data in their communities.  The 9 cities chosen to beta test the index will be helping to establish the system that will eventually support a rating system for municipalities allowing direct comparison of communities all across the nation.  The information gathered to determine the city rating will also become an invaluable tool for decision makers in government, schools, nonprofit organizations and businesses.  Chattanooga’s Office of Sustainability will be spearheading the efforts locally.  You can call their office at 423-668-2271 for more details.
