A Partnership for Progress

The Morris Model is made up of the below community partners who all collaborate together to meet our shared goals around clean and efficient energy, transportation, waste reduction and recycling, and education. Many of our partners came together in 2018 and ratified our Strategic Plan and have now began ratifying goals for their own organizations. All of our partners assist us in our work to be a model in sustainability. We are all in a Partnership for Progress.
