CHESHIRE HONORED WITH SUSTAINABLE CT CERTIFICATION

June 2021

 

Cheshire met high standards in a broad range of sustainability accomplishments to qualify for the prestigious bronze-level certification.

Cheshire successfully completed actions including brownfield remediation at the Ball & Socket project site, bike-to-school events with Bike Cheshire, and the creation of Pollinator Pathway gardens along the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail.  In addition, the Coalition for a Sustainable Cheshire organized a group of local volunteers to develop the Seeding Backyard Composting campaign, which gained state-wide attention and was recognized as a model civic engagement project by Sustainable CT.
