Taking North Hempstead’s Temperature on Climate Change
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and Town Board along with the Town’s Climate Smart Communities Task Force encourage the community to participate in a survey to assess issues, perceptions, and beliefs about Climate Change. Findings will help the Town determine what community members believe are the most important actions to tackle when creating its Climate Action Plan.
“The Town of North Hempstead recognizes the detrimental impact of climate change on our community, and the Town Board and I are committed to developing and implementing policies that will reduce the Town's carbon footprint,” Supervisor DeSena said. “This survey will provide invaluable data and assist the Town in our sustainability efforts.”
The Town collaborated with faculty at NYIT to help develop the survey and has compiled a list of over one hundred stakeholders and community groups that will help spread the word to all communities throughout North Hempstead.
The survey is live on the Town’s Climate Action website and is accessible in multiple languages. All results will be made public and included in the Town of North Hempstead Climate Action Plan.
