The Rockland Energy Advisory Committee will present a proposed climate action plan for Rockland on Monday, May 20, at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall during a workshop with the City Council. The committee has worked for more than a year to develop a consensus set of policy recommendations, and the goal of the plan is for Rockland to be a carbon-neutral community by 2045. The committee also recommends that Rockland hire a staff sustainability coordinator, since the scope of its recommendations is beyond the capacity or authority of a municipal volunteer committee to implement.

Members of the community are encouraged to attend and share their thoughts on climate change and the city’s energy future. The workshop will be in council chambers at Rockland City Hall, 270 Pleasant Street.
