The first round of public meetings associated with the Cleaner, Greener Communities Finger Lakes Regional Sustainability Plan are slated for the middle of January.
The meetings will focus on providing interested parties with an overview of the process, plan goals and themes, and strategies for implementation.
The first two meetings will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Genesee County Building 2, at 3837 W. Main St. Road, Batavia; and at the Sanford Room at Hobart & William Smith Colleges Library in Geneva. A third meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Rochester Institute of Technology Golisano Institute for Sustainability.

The Coalition — including the nine counties in the region, the city of Rochester, municipalities, Genesee Transportation Council and Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council — is developing a regional sustainability plan that encompasses the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council area. The development of a comprehensive regional sustainability plan is the first stage of the Cleaner, Greener Communities program and is intended to develop a vision, goals and objectives for a sustainable future; identify actions needed to achieve it and outline metrics to measure success.
