CONGRATULATIONS to the Town of Huntington Team! And thank you to Mother Out Front Jennifer Brown for sharing this story!
We are happy to announce that the Town of Huntington, on Long Island, NY, has now committed to completing the Climate Smart Communities certification process and authorized:
- a government and community operations greenhouse gas inventory,
- a 100% renewable energy feasibility study to set greenhouse gas reduction goals, and
- a capital phase-in plan. It passed 5-0 at yesterday’s Town Board meeting (7/17/18).
We are also very thankful to ACEERS and our Town Board for having previous meetings with us on this important issue, and to Supervisor Chad Lupinacci for sponsoring the resolution.
We had a wonderful response from community members who showed up to the town board meeting. Our voices were heard and we will continue to push for a swift, complete, and just transition away from fossil fuels and toward 100% renewable energy.
