Falmouth MA is a Green Community

There are grants available to Green Community towns across the US. Falmouth MA is making a concentrated effort to be at the top of the list, and a leader. There are meetings coming up to help educate and elucidate Falmouth's plans.

There is a meeting at Lawrence School at 6:30pm Thursday evening. The Lawrence school is on Lakeview Ave and is the 7th and 8th grade middle school. The meeting will be in the auditorium.

There will also be a discussion of "Stretch Energy" at Town Meeting. This is the idea that building should encompass current energy conservation concepts and products. Towns with higher energy conserving building standards and codes can acquire grants from the Commonwealth of MA.

As of last November, only 64 of the over 350 MA towns were on the Stretch Code list. The links below can answer questions and provide more data.

I wish there were more green communities in not only the U.S. but the entire world.  It would be good for us and good for the environment
