Environmental Sustainability Task Force

The Role of the Environmental Sustainability Task Force (ESTF) is to develop recommendations for the Town Board of Trustees regarding the Town’s role in initiatives, strategies and tactics to advance environmental sustainability. Recommended strategies and tactics, delivered in a report due to the Town Board by January 31, 2022, will be assigned a proposed timeline for implementation. 

  • The ESTF has determined to focus its work on the following broad categories:
    • Buildings (existing and new) and energy efficiency.
    • Distributed clean energy generation and storage.
    • Solid waste disposal.
    • Transportation electrification.
    • Institutional factors in the success/failure of sustainability initiatives.

This Task Force has sunset and will be presenting the Environmental Sustainability Task Force Final Report at the February 8, 2022 Town Board Meeting. To access current meeting information please visit www.estes.org/boardsandmeetings.
