Rye Becomes a Climate Smart Community

On July 8, 2015, the Rye City Council passed a resolution making Rye a Climate Smart Community.

The Climate Smart Communities (CSC) program is a New York State initiative to help local communities reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, prepare for impacts of climate change and save taxpayer dollars. The program is designed to address 10 focus areas outlined in the CSC 10 Pledge Elements.

This CSC profile outlines Rye’s progress through the 10 pledge elements. Detailed information on actions completed, in progress, and identified for future action can be found in the CSC Profile.
