The City of Palm Coast is one of nine Florida governments to achieve Florida Green Building Coalition gold status and the only green local government in Northeast Florida.  The City has achieved the Gold Level Designation for a Green Local Government in February 2010 from the Florida Green Building Coalition as recognition for "extraordinary environmental stewardship" across all City departments and throughout the community.

Protecting natural resources, educating the community on preserving environmentally sensitive lands, escalating a recycle program, promoting water conservation, utilizing reuse water, and building new bike trails and multi-purpose paths are a few examples of the green initiatives that earned Palm Coast its prestigious green award.
