North Charleston is being honored by Home Depot Foundation as one of two nationwide for achievements in sustainable development.

Sustainability means different things to different folks, but generally is defined as understanding connections between the environment, society and the economy and working to make sure resources and opportunities are shared equally.

The award announced Monday notes North Charleston once faced challenges with the closing of the Charleston Navy Base and people leaving for the suburbs.

The city revised its master plan to reduce blight, reduce pollution and increase environmental awareness. It shares the $75,000 award with its nonprofit partner, the Sustainability Institute.

Minneapolis was the other city honored.
