Town response to Green Acton’s Kelley’s Corner statement

On May 18, 2018, Green Acton agreed on a statement on the Kelley’s Corner Infrastructure Project, and sent that statement in an email to the Kelley’s Corner Steering Committee. View that statement here.

Here is the text of the response we received from the Town, reformatted for the website. See the original of that response here. Continue reading

Land Use Committee

The Land Use Committee reviews, proposes solutions, and advocates
in areas where land use in Acton relates to the Town’s many environmental emergencies: climate, biodiversity, water, toxins, population, and social justice.

The Land Use committee generally meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Acton Town Hall. All from the general public — new members especially — are welcome to attend.

At each meeting, the committee expects to spend the first half of the two-hour meeting on current goals. Then, when time allows, there is discussion of sustainability matters in regard to several specific properties in Town, and/or other public policy matters that have come to the committee’s attention.

Whether or not you can attend a meeting, those who live in, work in, or visit Acton, are encouraged to suggest land use topics that are relevant to creating a more-sustainable town.

The committee can be reached at landuse-contact@greenacton.org. Archives of general committee discussions can be found here. Land use related information on the Green Acton website can be found here. Information on upcoming Land Use events can be found here:
