Mission Statement

In 2021, New Castle established a Climate Smart Communities (CSC) Task Force. As described on the NYS CSC website, the Task Force “serves as a central body of leadership that promotes and supports climate mitigation and adaption in the community.” The CSC Certification Program has over 100 Actions for certification, and the Task Force is documenting the Actions already taken by the Town, as well as working closely with the New Castle Sustainability Advisory Board in developing and implementing climate action strategies.
