The Redding Board of Selectmen recently voted to apply to Sustainable Connecticut to become a member town. The program provides municipalities with a range of coordinated, voluntary actions, to continually become more sustainable. First Selectwoman Julia Pemberton reviewed the benefits of becoming a member, noting that Redding has already done many of the action items. There is no charge to join but it will require a sustainability team. The program provides resources and tools to assist municipalities in implementing sustainability actions and advancing their programs for the benefit of all residents. Brookfield, New Milford and Ridgefield are all certified at the Bronze level. Bethel recently joined and is not yet certified for their ongoing sustainability achievements.
