At our latest meeting of the Green Team we continued to discuss how to increase outreach and participation starting with updating the website www.RutherfordGreenTeam.ORG and hosting a Green Festival in coordination with Arbor Day in April. We also discussed how the different Borough Committees could work together given there are overlaps and non-functioning committees. Other discussion topics included Borough recycling plans and current status of Complete Streets initiatives in the Borough.
Please join us March 12th at 7pm on the second floor of Borough Hall for our next Green Team meeting. Topics up for discussion will include – follow-up on new member outreach, volunteers in the Borough, HS Green Club, Community Garden, Rails to Trails, Complete Streets and the Bike Ring. The team will also be reviewing the Sustainable Jersey application at the next meeting. http://www.sustainablejersey.com/actions-certification/actions/
