For Immediate Release: 10/28/2020 3:38 pm
The City of Worcester seeks public input on the Green Worcester Sustainability and Resilience Plan, which aims to make Worcester one of the most sustainable and climate-resilient cities in America.
A public draft is available for comment now, and can be accessed at https://greenworcester.konveio.com/. The deadline for public comment is Tuesday, Nov. 17.
The Green Worcester Plan addresses important environmental issues ranging from Climate Change to Sustainability Education and Green Open Space, from Clean Water to Transportation, and much more. This is the public’s opportunity to weigh in on how the City works toward its vision and goals in becoming a sustainable, resilient, green, livable, prosperous and equitable community for all residents.
“The urgent challenges of climate change, and the potentially catastrophic results if we ignore it, demand that we bring to bear all our resources in addressing its impact,” City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. said. “The Green Worcester Plan is a roadmap to becoming a sustainable and climate-resilient city that is safe and healthy not just in the immediate years ahead of us, but for generations to come. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to leave a legacy that says Worcester did not ignore climate change, but instead created a plan to tackle one of the greatest threats of our time.”
