WEDNESDAY — DECEMBER 4, 2019 — ONLINE— Webinar to learn about Brookline’s gas ban
As a climate advocate you have most likely heard the news by now that last week at town meeting Brookline passed a ban on natural gas hookups for new buildings. You may not know, however, how that ban came to be. We are enthused to invite you to a webinar on December 4th where you will get to hear from two of the co-petitioners.
The Brookline warrant article is really important because we all know:
• Climate change is the defining issue of our time
• Buildings are more than 50% of our emissions in MA
• All electric buildings are the path forward
• Communities are leading the way!
The good news is, you will get to learn about Brookline’s process from the folks who did it. You will get to hear how this warrant article came about, how and why it changed over time, what the process was, and what’s next.

MONDAY — DECEMBER 9, 2019 (RESCHEDULED AGAIN!) — ASHLAND, MA— Conservation Commission Eversource Hearing
The Conservation Commission’s Eversource permit hearing has been rescheduled from Monday, November 25th to Monday, December 9th at 7 PM- Town Hall, 2nd floor. We will let you know if this date changes.
This is a very important hearing. The Conservation Commission has permitting authority with regard to wetlands and stormwater, and it’s possible that a vote will be taken at this meeting. Please make every effort to attend and share this information widely.
There is absolutely no way for Eversource to perform the construction and digging required by this project — which is estimated to take 5 years — without doing irreparable damage to wetland areas, wildlife habitats and Ashland State Park. Whether or not you speak or ask questions, your presence in opposition to this project is very important. We recommend you arrive early for seating. Those who wish can also write to the Conservation Commission (firstname.lastname@example.org) to express your opposition.
