I was honored to be chosen this month to join the founding Board of Directors for Sustainable Westchester, an inter-municipal consortium focused on positive environmental and planning practices. The launch of Sustainable Westchester completes a merger of two organizations that had previously worked separately in the southern and northern portions of the county. As a unified entity, Sustainable Westchester presently includes thirty-seven municipalities representing more than 80% of Westchester’s population.
The founding Board of Directors has twelve members, about evenly split between elected officials and others with relevant experience in business, advocacy, or the not-for-profit world.
I hope that we can serve as a useful resource to Westchester’s cities, towns, and villages, as we all work together to ensure a sustainable future.
