Champion Sustainability

We are lucky to live in a community with an arboretum, the South Mountain
Reservation, several parks and recreational fields. As a parent and coach for my
daughters’ recreation teams, my family and I regularly enjoy these Township
amenities. These, and all, natural resources must be preserved so that they can be
enjoyed by all residents and visitors for generations. Moreover, use of renewable
energy sources can represent a long-term cost savings to the Township and serve
as valuable resources during storm outages. To these ends, I would like to
facilitate and encourage opportunities for solar power and integrated battery
backup systems. Additionally, it is important to obtain the highest possible level
of Sustainable Jersey certification. In addition to the substantive benefits of
meeting the highest certification, it will enable the Township to avail itself of
additional grant funding and resources. Also, it is important to require higher
levels of LEED certification for significant new construction projects (minimum of
Silver, with incentives for Gold or Platinum), as well as obtain the highest possible
level of Sustainable Jersey certification.
