Environment and Sustainability
This information resource is provided by the Village of Cooperstown and the Environmental Conservation Committee
The ECC meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 8:30 a.m. in the Village board room at 22 Main St (lower level) to discuss environmental and quality of life issues facing our community and the surrounding area. We are very aware of our responsibility to be prudent stewards of our air, water and energy resources. The public is invited to our meetings and to participate in discussions.
We are always interested in new members for the committee and we welcome new ideas and the people who would like to see them through. Our committee is interested in developing, supporting and participating in environmentally responsible projects that will be of benefit to our residents and visitors alike.
Please contact: ECC Chair and Village Trustee James R Dean: firstname.lastname@example.org 607-435-0255 cell at any time for more information.
