Sustainability Advisory Committee: 2022 Retrospective

SAC-Retrospective_1222

Along with merry-making and celebrations, another year-end tradition is to reflect on the past and look toward the future. Here are a few of the committee’s achievements in 2022:


  • In January, West Goshen Township was recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation as a 2021 Tree City USA 

  • Two public information meetings about Ordinance 16-2021, Plastic Bag and Plastic Straw Regulations, were held early in the year

  • A new webpage was launched featuring key information about the ban for township retail businesses and the consumers who patronize them.

  • Enforcement of the plastic bag ban ordinance began on April 22

  • From our booth at the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Community Park, we distributed free reusable grocery bags

  • The annual Arbor Day celebration and proclamation was held at Oaklands Cemetery on April 29

  • The SAC welcomed two new members, Barbara Rinehart and Scott DeLone

  • We conducted oversight of the historic weeping beech tree and made recommendations for its continued health

  • Each month we contributed articles to eNews covering a variety of topics, from gas powered leaf blowers and water conservation, to decreasing your carbon footprint
