Newfield to form Climate Smart Communities Task Force

Concerned about Climate Change?

The Town of Newfield adopted the Climate Smart Communities Pledge on June 11th, and is seeking community members to apply for membership in Newfield’s Climate Smart Communities task force. The CSC task force will serve as a central body of leadership that promotes and supports climate mitigation and adaption in the community. The CSC task force will act as an advisory committee that advises and collaborates with the Town government to accomplish plans, programs, and activities that are part of the CSC Certification program.

The Town Board’s intent is to include community members, business owners, elected officials, students, and leaders of community organizations who have a passion for sustainability and a  concern about climate change and how it will affect our community. It is important to have a wide range of perspectives to address this complicated issue. Applicants must have time and energy to contribute.
