8/22 GREENBURGH'S ENERGY CONSERVATION MANDATE IS FIRST IN NY STATE---APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.. The Greenburgh Town Board unanimously approved legislation mandating energy conservation in new residential buildings. The Town Board also adopted a resolution directing the administration to work with Pace Law School, NYSERDA, USDOE, USEPA to develop specifications and legislation so that the town can mandate energy conservation in commercial buildings. We will also comply with energy conservation mandates when building a new town hall/library and when facilities are renovated.
OTHER LOCALITIES HAVE ALREADY CONTACTED SUPERVISOR PAUL FEINER REQUESTING COPIES OF LEGISLATION---Greenburgh's innovative legislation will create momentum around the region for energy conservation and hopefully lead to the shutdown of Indian Point.
