Municipal Sustainable Building Guidelines

The Sustainable Energy Committee, in consultation with the Facilities Management Department, developed Municipal Sustainable Building Guidelines (the Guidelines) to inform municipal building projects and private development on Town-owned land. The SEC presented the Guidelines along with a Summary to boards, committees and departments across Town for discussion and feedback. The SEC also held a Public Hearing on January 29, 2020. The SEC is requesting that Building Proponents (Board of Selectmen, School Committee, Wellesley Free Library Trustees, Board of Public Works, Municipal Light board, Natural Resources Commission and Recreation Commission) vote on the Guidelines.
