Greensburg receives an award for dedication toward long-term economic and environmental sustainability

Siemens Industry, Inc., today will award Mayor Dixson and the City Council with the 2011 Siemens Sustainable Community Award in a special ceremony at City Hall at 5:00 p.m.

Created in 2008 by the U.S. Chamber Business Civic Leadership Center and Siemens Corporation, the Sustainable Community Awards are given to U.S. communities that are taking proactive steps to improve quality of life, be a steward of the environment and increase the ability to sustain a successful community for generations to come.

The award was first announced in April at the 2011 National Conference on Corporate Community Investment in Philadelphia.
