Executive Director, Lloyd EcoDistrict

Sarah Heinicke is currently serving as Executive Director of the Lloyd EcoDistrict. In this capacity she is working with the board and other district stakeholders to inspire action and implement the Lloyd community vision. She is leading the effort to define district baseline conditions, district goals and plans to achieve those goals. Sarah brings her depth of experience in development, sustainability, and project management to deliver a uniquely integrated approach to the EcoDistrict concept.
