This paper focuses on sustainable cities strategies and indicators for the case of Santa Monica city, US using a set of 29 sustainable indicators for some years 1990-2006. The study sheds light on the application of some sustainable development (SD) indicator and suggests more applicable and specific data to further examine other cities sustainable programmes. The six thematic dimensions: sustainable, economic, equitable, social, viable and livable, where 62% of the 29 indicators are presented. Indeed, the review of some of the 29 indicators for Santa Monica shows the various levels of SD before and after the Sustainable City Program (SCP).
