Thank you for those who came out on Saturday, those who reached out to Town Meeting Members, and of course to Town Meeting Members for their enthusiastic support for Article 12 regarding climate change. Article 12 helps lay a foundation for the Sustainable Energy Committee’s (SEC) work on a new town-wide Climate Action Plan this fiscal year.
Be on the lookout for upcoming Climate Action Plan feedback sessions. Residents, businesses, and organizations, as well as town boards and departments will be key to developing a roadmap of actions to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. In 2021, the SEC will propose new emissions reduction goals for the town and a final Climate Action Plan with specific recommendations.
P.S. Article 17, which strengthen's the Town's existing tree bylaw, and the citizens petition regarding a fur ban, passed as well.
