June Meeting

Greetings Everyone!!

As the school year comes to a close, and the tourists descend upon our fair city, the summer is usually a time when things slow down for our committee. We will continue to hold monthly meetings – as long as there is interest – but the focus will be more on discussing what types of projects we want to take on during the Fall, when we start ramping up again.

There are a number of interesting possibilities, including:

1. Becoming a part of Harvestfest – in at least some capacity.
2. Reaching out to local tourism related businesses – and helping them connect with state programs that promote sustainability.
3. Working with the town to allow Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) bonds for homeowners wanting to install energy upgrades to their home.

Those are just some of the ideas that we’ve been kicking around. We’d love to hear your ideas too!

Our next meeting is this coming Tuesday at the York Public Library at 7pm. One of the things we’ll be talking about is the implications of the Gulf Oil Spill, and what it will mean for us locally. In addition we’ll also be discussing the new fee structure for dumping yard waste and compost at the town facility – and whether or not we want to take an official position on it.

Hope to see you there!

P.S.: Don’t forget to check out the “York Community Dialogue” meeting on Saturday, June 12th at York High School from 8:30 – 12:00. There will be people and groups represented from all over York!
