Central New York's Climate Change Innovation Program
Today, the Madison County Board of Supervisors will consider participating in the Central New York Climate Change Innovation Program by adopting the Climate Smart Communities Pledge. The pledge serves as an agreement to complete a wide spectrum of local climate initiatives ranging from promoting renewable energy to developing an adaptation plan for the local effects of climate change.
If Madison County decides to participate in the Central New York Climate Change Innovation Program, it will receive as much as $30,000 in funding from the Regional Planning and Development Board to implement energy conservation/ alternative energy development projects. Thus far, Syracuse, Oswego, Cortland, Preble, Dewitt, Skaneateles, Port Byron and Madison, Cayuga counties are participating in the Central New York Climate Change Innovation Program.
Stay tuned for more information on Madison's progress.
