A Sustainable CT Town
On January 16th, 2020, the Easton Board of Selectmen voted to join a growing number of communities across the state participating in Sustainable CT, an exciting program to support Connecticut's cities and towns. The statewide initiative, created by towns for towns, includes a detailed menu of sustainability best practices, tools and resources, peer learning, and recognition. Please visit the program’s website via the link to the left.
The Sustainable CT platform supports a broad range of actions, such as improving watershed management, supporting arts and creative culture, reducing energy use and increasing renewable energy, implementing “complete streets” (streets that meet the needs of walkers and bikers as well as cars), improving recycling programs, assessing climate vulnerability, supporting local farms/businesses, and providing efficient and diverse housing options. Easton has and will continue focusing on those actions that protect and restore our watershed, promote agriculture and agriculture-friendly practices, and promote the health of our community.
Have an idea you think Easton should pursue to become a more sustainable community? Interested in volunteering to help Easton meet this goal? Please send an email to the contact on the left!
