A presentation will be made by the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board (CNY RPDB) to explain the draft Climate Action Plan (CAP) and how it was created.
Work on the CAP began in December of 2014 when the town adopted the Climate Smart Communities pledge. Having an adopted plan such as this will help the town and community members to reduce energy use, save money, and increase the likelihood of receiving future state and federal grants.
