A series of public workshops next week will seek the public’s ideas forthe Cleaner Greener Southern Tier Plan.
Planners from across the region are looking for public reactions to both long-term and short-term approaches to reduce energy use, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase overall regional sustainability. These actions will be the building blocks of the long-term regional sustainability plan to be completed this fall.
Citizens are invited to attend any of the three upcoming public workshops:
- Corning: Tuesday, October 9, 6:30pm-8:30pm
Three Rivers Development Corp, 114 Pine Street, Suite 201, Corning
- Binghamton: Wednesday, October 10, 6:30pm-8:30pm

- Ithaca: Thursday, October 11, 6:30pm-8:30pm

Anyone who cannot make it to the workshops, may offer suggestions through the website from October 5th-21st. The Regional Sustainability Goals Report and the Sustainability Indicator Inventory is also available for review at the website.
About the Cleaner Greener Southern Tier Plan
The Cleaner Greener Southern Tier Plan is a regional sustainability plan for the Southern Tier. Through the workshops and the website, residents, businesses, and institutions from Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Delaware, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins counties are all invited to participate in the development of this plan to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
This Cleaner Greener Southern Tier Plan received $1 million from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to develop a regional sustainability vision and goals that will provide a map to a sustainable future for the Southern Tier and identify actions needed to achieve that future.
