Our aim is to work with a variety of stakeholders in whatever capacity necessary to achieve sustainability at all levels.
Emerald City Owner and Founder, Keland Logan, began working in the sustainable development space in 2017 in his role as the Executive Director of The Colony Youngstown, a community development nonprofit. As a community engagement partner on a large stormwater committee (led by Greenprint Partners https://www.greenprintpartners.com) tasked with developing a city wide stormwater management plan, The Colony was responsible for the development and facilitation of an engagement initiative that successfully educated residents and raised awareness about problems and potential solutions surrounding stormwater in Mahoning Valley. It was during this time that Mr. Logan:
With this new awareness and a lifelong conviction to leave the world a better place, Mr. Logan committed to building a sustainable development construction company that works in whatever capacity necessary to realize truly equitable solutions for all.
After gaining more experience and skills - along with a few dedicated crew members - through several green infrastructure and low-impact development projects with the City of Youngstown, local businesses, and local homeowners, Mr. Logan decided to incorporate Emerald City Construction Company LLC. The company’s mission statement reads: “To be a world leader in sustainable green development and construction services.” Mr. Logan believes that a simple, focused mission is the best way to approach such a complex issue. To date he and his team have installed over 10 working Green Infrastructure and Stormwater Management applications varying from downspout disconnection to rain gardens to detention basins.
Our founder and CEO Keland Logan was selected to be a panelist for the "Implementing Sustainability Inside and Outside Your Organization" section of the conference.
Mission: To be a world leader in in the field of sustainable development and construction services.
As mankind develops more sustainable technology, increasing our ability to more efficiently mitigate negative impacts on the environment and as legislation that supports the requirement of Sustainable Development Applications increasingly becomes law; the need for companies that are committed providing “Sustainable” products and services will increase. Emerald City Co will rise to meet this need.
