Environmental Sustainability & Climate Change Impacts is North Haven's Focus Priority 3. This priority, like the Town's other priorities, was identified during the Community Vision Process in the fall and winter of 2021. In order to address this priority and its above objective, the Town created a Climate Working Group that, with the help of Gabe McPhail, enrolled North Haven in the Community Resilience Partnership (CRP), a program through the Governor's Office of Policy Innovation and the Future (GOPIF).

Through the CRP, and in partnership with Vinalhaven and Fox Island Electric Co-op, the Town applied for funding to convert its streetlights to LED lights.

Due to the interconnected nature of our community's priorities, a climate lens is being taken in our approach to all of our priorities. Read more about the Climate Working Group and view the Town's CRP enrollment materials below.

Additionally, read about the Town's efforts to better understand our island's freshwater resources and options for mitigating the impacts of climate change on the municipal drinking water supply on the Fresh Water Resource page.
