Sustainable CT, a statewide initiative that supports and recognizes sustainability action by Connecticut communities, was launched last year and announced its first group of certified towns this week. In our application for certification, Coventry demonstrated significant achievements in nine sustainable impact areas ranging from thriving local economies and vibrant arts and culture to clean transportation and diverse housing. Coventry’s successfully completed actions included evaluating the impact of solar power, working on affordable housing as part of our Plan of Conservation and Development, and increasing building efficiency by converting Town facilities to natural gas.
The process of going through the submission process gave us the opportunity not only to see what the Town of Coventry has done to become more sustainable both environmentally and economically, but also guided us on what steps are next. Our town can be proud of what we have achieved.
