Community Sustainability

The Energy and Climate Protection Plan prepared in 2014 focuses on the municipal operations that the Town administers, where the Town has the most responsibility and control.  Local government operations occur within the larger community and regional/state/ national/global context.  The plan does include recommendations to support the community  with energy efficiency,  renewable energytransportation , and urban forestry efforts that have climate protection, and many other benefits (see cartoon below).  

A broader Community Climate Action Plan has been drafted with support from the Energy and Climate Action Task Force.  The plan is being reviewed in the spring of 2016; community input is being sought.
