The Capital Region Sustainability Plan, a coalition effort to craft a smart growth plan for Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren and Washington Counties is part of the the Cleaner, Greener Communities program, a major environmental initiative announced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo last year.

Your participation will help us create a regional plan that reflects the values and vision of you and your community. Participants will have opportunities to learn and contribute through a range of options from low tech to high tech, and you will have an opportunity to experience new approaches to meetings that go beyond stale coffee, donuts and talking heads.
You’ll find information about the process, the Consortium and the project team, and upcoming events on the new web site [http://sustainablecapitalregion.org/], on the Facebook page [https://www.facebook.com/sustainablecapitalregion], and on Twitter [http://www.twitter.com/SustainCapReg].
These public meetings are taking place across the state in each of the plan’s 7 regions. To find meetings near you click here.
