CCC To Host Green Tier Legacy Communities Discussion
Join the nonpartisan Climate Change Coalition (CCC) of Door County on March 10, 7 pm, for a free, virtual discussion of the state’s innovative Green Tier Legacy Communities program and the benefits it offers.
Green Tier is a forward-looking, cost-saving approach to helping businesses and communities foster good environmental and sustainability practices, maximize their resources and benefit from substantial savings that Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources has offered since 2010. Egg Harbor, Ephraim, the Town of Gibraltar and Door County are all participants, and other county communities are exploring the program’s advantages.
The discussion’s two speakers will be Laurel Sukup, chief of sustainability and business support for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources; and Ryan Heise, until recently the village administrator of Egg Harbor, a Green Tier leader in Door County and now the city manager of Saugatuck, Michigan. Heise was previously the director of operations for Florida’s Lakewood Ranch – reportedly the nation’s largest green development.
Registration for the free, virtual discussion is required. Sign up at climatechangedoorcounty.com/upcoming-events/wisconsins-green-tier-legacy-communities, where a registration button will direct you to the Eventbrite registration page.
