Public Meeting of Westwood's Climate Action Taskforce


The Town of Westwood has announced a public meeting of its Climate Action Taskforce on Thursday, April 11, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the Westwood Public Library.

On the agenda is a review of the draft Climate Action, Resiliency & Sustainability Plan, a presentation by Tufts University, and a period for feedback from the taskforce as well as the public. 

Previously, two community visioning sessions were held on October 19th and November 2nd of last year.  The discussion included ways to reduce the town's carbon footprint while being friendly to business. At that time, a goal was set to finalize the plan by the summer of 2o24.

The newly established Climate Action Taskforce first met in September 2023, and has been advising Town Planner Elijah Romulus on the climate action plan which is intended to help prioritize town efforts to adapt to climate change. The plan will address five areas of town operations: land use and transportation; natural and working lands; sustainable buildings and clean energy use; resiliency planning and implementation; and water and waste management.
