Description

Sustainable communities are an integral part of the clean energy economy - housing, jobs, innovation, growth. Several regions in Massachusetts were awarded Regional Sustainability Planning Grants in 2010 by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, including the Franklin Regional Council of Governments, Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission and 2011 Preferred Sustainability Status holder, the Institute for Energy and Sustainability. Panelists from each agency will share how these plans will improve sustainability in Massachusetts communities, what we can learn from the similarities and differences of sustainability planning in each region and how groups and individuals can connect and participate in the planning development.
