Ongoing Goals
  • Goal #1, Energy Transition Plan:
    In October 2020, the EAC recommended the approval of the Hatboro Ready for 100 Renewable Energy Resolution which aligns with the Sierra Club’s RF100 Campaign.  The Resolution was adopted by Council.  Currently, data is being collected on the use and cost of energy consumption within Borough-owned buildings.  The energy audit will provide data to create a baseline for the Hatboro Energy Transition Plan.  As a roadmap, the ETP outlines goals to be met by specific dates in accordance with the RF100 Renewable Energy Resolution.  The ETP must be presented to Borough Council by October 2021 for its approval.

  • Goal #2, National Wildlife Federation's Community Wildlife Habitat Program: 
    The Hatboro EAC is encouraging residents, schools, places of worship, and businesses to join in and support a National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat Certification program in the borough.  This program certifies backyards, schools, public buildings, places of worship, and entire communities that meet certain criteria as Wildlife Habitat, and promotes Environmental Education for residents.

 

      If enough Hatboro gardens can be individually certified, then the Borough can attain certification as a           Community Wildlife Habitat, and align itself with other environmentally conscious municipalities in our             area, becoming part of a veritable “Corridor of Habitat” that allows beneficial insects such as bees and           butterflies, wild birds, and other small animals to flourish in our locale. We request the community’s help           to achieve this goal: Hatboro would like to encourage 50 property owners to achieve certification by               Earth Day 2022.
