Somerville Climate Forward comments

I’ve been involved with the development of Somerville’s climate action plan, called Somerville Climate Forward, from the outset. I’ve participated in three committee meetings (for the Economic and Community Development committee). And now, a year later, a near-final draft has been distributed for final comment. Today, I went through the draft, all 130+ pages of it, and pulled together my final comments. Overall, it’s a great plan — the trick will really be to make sure it doesn’t sit on a shelf and languish. It will take a sustained effort from all City departments, the Mayor and the Board of Alderman to bring this to life.

    Very cool to see you involved in something that could have significant results, at least within Somerville. Is the current version of the plan available to the public, and/or will it be published after this round of final comments?

      It’ll be published in mid- to late-November, accompanied by a public outreach launch event (for which I think I also just volunteered). Then the hard work starts.
