Initiative Objective

This is a warrant article for Town Meeting, written by a Concord lawyer and supported by our local climate action group. We are asking the Town municipality to adopt sustainability principles and guidelines. Following is the Article.


By Citizen Petition, Hasso Ewing

To determine whether the Town will vote to urge the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen to establish sustainability principles or guidelines designed to promote the conservation of resources and sustainable practices in the activities of Town government, and which require: 
1) that all Town Departments, Boards and Committees consider those principles or guidelines when conducting their activities and carrying out their responsibilities, and 
2) that they report periodically to the Town Manager, the Board of Selectmen and the citizens of Concord on their progress in meeting the principles or guidelines so that the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen may develop a Town-wide framework for measuring the progress of Town government toward achieving sustainability in all its activities, or take any other action relative thereto.
