The city’s new Sustainability Team is looking for members.
The Sustainability Team, also known as the Green Team, will help manage West Haven’s sustainability efforts by identifying resources and opportunities and creating an action plan for enhancing and developing the city’s capacity to thrive as a community — economically, environmentally and culturally.
Ideally, the team will consist of members from different backgrounds who are enthusiastic about making West Haven more sustainable. It is helpful if members have some knowledge of sustainability issues; however, the most important factor is a willingness to engage in the process.
The Sustainability Team will hold regular meetings and create a plan toward reaching the benchmarks outlined in the Sustainable CT program, such as recycling, energy conservation and shoreline restoration.
Send letters of interest by Aug. 15 to Kristen Teshoney in the mayor’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
