Needham is poised to become a Massachusetts Green Community this fall, but it will only happen with your support. Please join us at two upcoming meetings to learn more and to demonstrate your support.  Help us join the 74 other towns and cities that are committed to becoming more sustainable, vibrant communities by investing locally to reduce energy use and save money.

Green Needham Informational Meeting on the Stretch Energy Code:  Wednesday, Sept. 21th

What would the adoption of the Stretch Code mean for you?  Green Needham's program will provide an explanation of the code and, more importantly, offer the opportunity for building professionals, town officials and staff, and the general public to get their questions answered.

This meeting will be held in the Community Room at The Needham Public Library, 7:30-9:00.
