goHunterdon provides free assistance to Hunterdon municipalities and schools seeking certification under the statewide Sustainable Jersey program. goHunterdon also coordinates the Sustainable Hunterdon Hub, a forum for municipal green team representatives interested in promoting sustainability within Hunterdon County. “Many of the Actions that municipalities and schools can pursue under the Sustainable Jersey program are complementary to goHunterdon’s mission, particularly the Actions related to Land Use and Transportation, Health and Wellness, and Community Sustainability,” says Tara Shepherd, goHunterdon Executive Director.
A 2023 kick off meeting of the Sustainable Hunterdon Municipal Hub was held in January and a second meeting was held in March. The event featured an expert panel including representatives of NJ Department of Environmental Protection, NJ Electric Vehicle Association, and Sustainable Jersey to offer information, updates, and guidance on encouraging electric vehicle adoption and implementing electric vehicle infrastructure in their community. Ten Hunterdon municipalities were represented at the event, including the Town of Clinton, Clinton Township, Flemington Borough, Franklin Township, High Bridge Borough, Holland Township, Kingwood Township, Raritan Township, Readington Township, and Tewksbury Township.
The March meeting focused on opportunities for increased collaboration among municipal green teams, new and updated Sustainable Jersey Action Items, and plans for Earth Day 2023.
The next Sustainable Hunterdon Hub meeting will be held in July. For more information about the Sustainable Hunterdon Hub or getting involved with your municipal Green Team, contact Margret Thompson, email@example.com
