Join the Climate Smart Community Task Force
Climate Smart Communities (CSC) is a voluntary New York State program that helps local governments take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to a changing climate. The program offers technical assistance and grants for town projects. On December 9, 2021 Stuyvesant took the first step toward becoming a Climate Smart Community by passing the CSC pledge as a resolution to join the program and become a registered CSC. Bill Schneider has been designated the town’s primary contact person for this program. Our resolution and application for registration are currently under review by the DEC.
After becoming a Registered CSC, our town can pursue certification actions at its own pace. There is no time limit between adoption of the pledge and commencement of the work, but we are anxious to get started. In this program towns like ours earn points toward various levels of certification (bronze, silver, and gold) by taking actions to address climate change. The CSC website describes the requirements for each level of certification and the documentation required to earn points. Visit this website to learn more about these actions: https://climatesmart.ny.gov/actions-certification/actions/ .
The Town of Stuyvesant has received a small supply of COVID test kits and will be giving them out on a limited, emergency need only basis (on a first come, first serve basis) due to the finite number of them we have available. Please call the Town Clerk to make arrangements for one if needed. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
We also have N95 Masks available for distribution.
