Sustainability Taskforce

UPT Sustainability Task Force is a group of community volunteers working to advocate for environmentally responsible practices and policies that promote the overall health and well-being of our residents and the environment.  This entails, but is not limited to, reducing and eliminating excess plastic waste; lowering greenhouse gas emissions; composting and reducing food waste; cutting down significantly on yard waste; promoting more walkability and public green spaces; and many more beneficial long-term ambitions.  The taskforce has been looking to other models of best practices in nearby municipalities.  They also plan to do a lot of local fact-finding to help assess the specific needs and readiness of UPT in moving towards a greener future.
