Bedford Community Forum: Climate Impact of Private Jet Expansion

Date: September 28, 2023
Time: 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM ET
Location: Reed Room, Bedford Town Hall , 10 Mudge Way , Bedford, Massachusetts, 01730

Discussion Panelists: Neil Rasmussen (President, Save Our Heritage), Emily Mitchell (Bedford Select Board), Bill McKibben (Author, Educator, Environmentalist, via zoom)

Massport is planning a massive hangar build-out for private jets at Hanscom Field (NOT at Hanscom Air Force Base), representing the largest single development in Hanscom’s history. If carried out, these plans will dramatically increase greenhouse gas emissions and undermine municipal, state, and national climate goals at a time when climate scientists are urging us to accelerate these goals and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The speakers will present information on the proposed expansion and its impact on our climate and community.

After hearing from the speakers, there may be opportunity for questions. RSVP to attend in person or by zoom.

Sponsors: Mothers Out Front Bedford, Third Act of Bedford, and League of Women Voters of Bedford (members of Co-sponsor: Energy & Sustainability Committee of Bedford.
