Sustainable Rocky Hill Task Force

Posted on: September 19, 2023

[ARCHIVED] Sustainability updates from the September 18, 2023 Town Council meeting

SUSRH TC 09192023

    We've heard back from DEEP that a pre-requisite for receiving a ~$200,000 grant for composting is a commitment to adopt unit-based pricing for waste management (a.k.a. pay-as-you-throw). The council is exploring how firm a requirement that is. Regardless of whether Rocky Hill receives the grant, we may be able to go through with a plan to collect food scraps at the transfer station.

    The town council supports the town's participation in program from The Nature Conservancy that helps towns to create a climate resilience plan, one that supports our Plan of Conservation and Development and our Hazard Mitigation Strategy.

    The town council wants the Sustainability Task Force to focus on Composting, Solar Power, Community Resilience, and Affordable Housing.
