DC Neighborhood Sustainability Indicators Project


The Neighborhood Sustainability Indicators Pilot Project (NSIPP) NSIP is a grassroots level, action-oriented project involving neighborhood residents, businesses and institutions interested in promoting and enhancing sustainability in a way that is meaningful to them and their neighborhood. It offers the community an opportunity to define sustainability, create a vision, and develop a sustainability frame­work with goals, objectives and actions to reach that vision. In addition, it encourages the community to identify and track neighborhood sustainability indicators to share and report progress towards reaching its goals and overall vision on a regular basis.

Cooperatively developed by the DC Office of Planning and DC Department of Environ­ment, the Pilot Project applies the NSIP process to a portion of Ward 3 in Northwest DC that can serve as a model for other neighborhoods in the District to undertake their own sustainability efforts in a coordinated and effective way.
