Chester Township is a Sustainable Jersey certified community--one of only 137 in the state. Chester Township achieved Sustainable Jersey certification at the Bronze level for the second time by achieving 240 points. Certified towns are an outstanding group of municipalities that are making important contributions toward the long-term goal of a sustainable New Jersey. To become Sustainable Jersey certified, Chester Township had to complete a balance of the rigorous program’s sustainability actions. In addition, Chester Township created a Green Team and did 2 priority actions by completing energy audits for municipal buildings and a fleet inventory of our Township vehicles. Sustainable Jersey is a voluntary program that requires no fee for the certification. “Creating a sustainable lifestyle within a Town takes a lifelong commitment. As Mayor of Chester Township I have been committed to creating and sustaining both the environment of Chester and preserving the beauty of Chester,” said William Cogger, Mayor of Chester Township. “The success we have enjoyed as a town is the result of a collaborative effort of both the Town Council and the volunteers on our Environmental Commission who have shown themselves to be stewards of the land.” The certified towns will be recognized at the fifth annual Sustainable Jersey awards luncheon on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at the 98th Annual New Jersey League of Municipalities Conference. To get involved with Chester Township’s Green Team and sustainability initiatives, contact Sarah Jane Noll at email@example.com.
