Public Input Requested: Conservation Advisory Council

In Athens, we are doing our part to respond to global climate change. We’ve included environmental issues in this year’s Comprehensive Plan update in addition to forming a Conservation Advisory Council. Part of the Council’s function is to help guide us toward recognition as a Climate Smart Community by New York State .

As part of becoming a Climate Smart Community, we are working with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties, to develop a “Climate Resilience Vision.”

That’s where we need your input!

Help us to refine Athens’ Climate Resilience Vision so it says what our community wants it to say.

A draft version of the Climate Resilience Vision is online at: So please take a moment to review it and submit comments here.

Please submit your comments by December 2nd.
Thank you!
