Sustainability has become a key issue for our community as more corporations have demonstrated an increasing commitment to sustainability.

Because of this, the City of Murfreesboro completed a program sponsored by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and was designated as a Valley Sustainable Gold Level Community. The gold-level designation recognizes that a community has taken a leadership role in implementing sustainable practices and has made a commitment to sustainability efforts focused on economic development.

The goal of the Valley Sustainable Communities Program is to document a community’s assets and increase the likelihood that they will be viewed as progressive and competitive by companies looking to invest in new or expanded locations.

In addition to our gold-level designation, Smyrna airport houses a 6-acre solar farm with 3,400 solar panels. Murfreesboro and Rutherford County Schools work with our Solid Waste Department on district-wide recycling programs and Nissan Smyrna has achieved an ENERGY STAR® plant certification each year since 2006.
