I am pleased to write a praise for some initiatives taken in the village to combat climate change.
First, as reported in Wednesday Journal on Dec. 1, there is the “Better Homes, Better Planet” campaign, which offers guidance, expertise, and money to help residents cut energy use — and bills — through home weatherization, solar panels, and other energy savings and upgrades.
A full list of what’s included can be found at www.sustainoakpark.com.
Oak Park has also started an initiative to prepare a Climate Action Plan. You can learn more and take part in the creation of the plan. https://graef.mysocialpinpoint.com/oak-park-climate-plan.
It is encouraging to see our village making strides in this climate crisis. These websites are worth a look. Please take a moment to sign up.
