A resolution was passed by the City Council supporting the participation & establishment of a Green Team for the Sustainable Jersey Certification Program. We are now working on action items that will help get us either a bronze or silver certification.
In June of this year we submitted many of the eligible action items that the City is already doing such as Brownfields Inventory & Prioritization, Solar Panels installed on municipal buildings, Community Gardens, Recycling Programs, Health & Fitness and Medical Prescription Drop Box just to name a few. Updates for all of the Action Items have to be submitted to Sustainable Jersey by September, 2014. The City has also received a $9000.00 grant to install a fitness trail along the waterfront on Sadowski Parkway.
We hold monthly meetings, and we invite you to come to our meetings to check out what we are doing.
Looking beyond, the Green Team would like to establish a Tree Fund and also get more community leaders involved to accomplish these things.
