Hearing on Evaluation of Green Community Designation
Wednesday, October 16 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Needham Select Board is currently evaluating the possibility of applying for designation as a Green Community through the Commonwealth’s Green Communities Program.
The League of Women Voters of Needham has advocated for Needham becoming a Green Community since 2010. We are very excited that Needham can meet all five criteria for Green Community status in 2019.
We encourage the Select Board to take the final step and apply to become a Green Community in 2019. We look forward to Needham joining the 240 (of 351) cities and towns participating in this program.
The Needham Select Board will hold a public hearing to receive community feedback at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 in Powers Hall, second floor of Town Hall, 1471 Highland Avenue.
We encourage community members to attend the hearing and support Needham becoming a Green Community. If you cannot attend or wish to comment in writing, email firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Select Board, Needham Town Hall, 1471 Highland Avenue, Needham, MA 02492.
