Municipal Sustainable Building Guidelines

The Climate Action 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 CAC presented the Guidelines along with a Summary to boards, committees and departments across Town for discussion and feedback. The CAC also held a Public Hearing on January 29, 2020. The following building proponents voted to approve the Guidelines: Board of Selectmen, School Committee, Wellesley Free Library Trustees, Board of Public Works, Municipal Light board, Natural Resources Commission, and Recreation Commission.
