General survey

How "eco" is your city? An Ecocity is a human settlement modeled on the self-sustaining resilient structure and function of natural ecosystems.
  • An ecocity seeks to provide healthy abundance to its inhabitants without consuming more renewable resources than it replaces.
  • It seeks to function without producing more waste than it can assimilate or recycle for new uses or than nature can dilute and absorb harmlessly, and without being toxic to itself or neighboring ecosystems.
  • Its inhabitants’ ecological impacts reflect planetary supportive lifestyles; its social order reflects fundamental principles of fairness, justice, reasonable equity and consensus at ample levels of happiness.

If you were to give your city an overall ecocity ranking what would it be?
Guideline: if you mostly answered "good" with 0 or only 1 or 2 "adequate" rankings you might rate your city overall a "Greener City 2 or 3" or possibly "Ecocity 1" if you think most all of the neighborhoods in your city rate almost as well. Hint - most cities are not yet ecocities!
