GPTF Mission

The Green Policy Task Force (“GPTF”) shall advise the Village administration and Board of Trustees and put into practice educational and other initiatives related to sustainability. GPTF priorities, including securing Village certification as a Climate Smart Community (and review other potentially useful certifications). The GPTF will work on the priorities outlined in the Village’s Environmental Action Plan, provide support for conducting energy/carbon baseline analysis and developing recommendations for energy/carbon reduction targets for municipal buildings, activities, and vehicular assets. The GPTF will lead in community engagement and education on LELE (leaf management), leaf blower regulations, home composting and food scrap program education, stormwater / stream management education and other environmental regeneration.  Our primary goal is to help the Village, residents, businesses and visitors to take action now to protect and mitigate the community from environmental disaster in the future.
