Sustainable CT Award for Bronze Certification
Last week Sustainable CT announced that the Town of Windsor is among 24 Connecticut municipalities to be recognized this year for achieving a Sustainable CT certification.
Sustainable CT, is a statewide initiative that inspires and supports communities in becoming more efficient, resilient, and inclusive. Collectively, sixty-two municipalities, nearly 37% of the state’s communities, have earned Sustainable CT certification. Certification lasts for three years.
The Town of Windsor met high standards in a broad range of sustainability accomplishments to qualify for the Bronze level certification. The highest level of certification currently offered is silver.
The town demonstrated significant achievements in actions related to twelve sustainable impact areas ranging from inclusive community building, thriving local economies, and vibrant arts and culture and clean transportation. The town received 250 points as part of its application exceeding the 200 point amount required for the bronze certification level.
The certification process was an extensive undertaking by staff. I want to note that Amanda-Marie Goode, Town Manager Graduate Intern assisted with preparing the application package during her year with the town along with the assistance of Chloe Thompson, Environmental Planner and Scott Colby, Assistant Town Manager.
