Officials are working to update the city's sustainability plan called Green Cincinnati.  

Environmental Quality Director Larry Falkin said it's the roadmap preparing the city to be environmentally, economically and socially successful in competitions with other cities and parts of the world.  

The plan was drafted in 2007 and city council adopted it a year later.  

Now Falkin said it's time for an update.
