Environmental Survey Results

The Climate and Environment Committee is planning to hold a meeting in September to review the results of the Town's Environmental Survey and hold a brainstorming session on the Town's environmental priorities for the next several years. The Committee will then develop recommendations to be presented to the Town Council for consideration.
