Climate Action Plan

The City Council, through a Climate Action Plan, establishes a framework designed to enhance the Town’s sustainable footprint. To the extent feasible and practical, the Town considers the long-term sustainability impacts of all governmental decisions; makes the protection and preservation of our natural environment a high priority in decision-making; recognizes that community education and participation are key to reaching sustainable goals; and seeks to work collaboratively with regional strategic partners to achieve sustainability targets.
