But more needs to be done -- particularly when it comes to climate change and preparing Westchester for future extreme weather events.
That's why NYLCV is redoubling our efforts in the county and working toward incremental solutions that will help the environment and economy.
NYLCV's Blueprint for a Greener Westchester County offers detailed transportation, energy, natural resources and planning guidance that will help villages, towns, cities and the county government meet their sustainability challenges. NYLCV's recommendations will yield significant environmental benefits while controlling costs, and in many cases will save taxpayer dollars over the long term. The Blueprint encompasses more than 40 specific actions that local elected officials can take to make Westchester green.
The NYLCV Education Fund is also play a key role in educating, engaging and empowering Westchester residents to be effective environmental advocates.
In the fall of 2013, NYLCVEF -- in partnership with Pace University -- hosted the Westchester Candidate Forum on Sustainability to get the candidates running for County Executive talking about their environmental plans.
In conjunction with Pace University Law School's Center for Environmental Legal Studies, NYLCVEF has produced a report tracking Westchester's progress in meeting local climate action goals.
