The SEC serves as a resource to the School Building Committee as that group plans for the future of Hardy, Hunnewell and Upham Elementary Schools. The SEC is also working toward a town-wide collaboration to create sustainable development guidelines. These guidelines will provide a road map for incorporating sustainability into future municipal building projects. These guidelines will also be a resource for private developers. The links below connect to a sample of SEC documents related to sustainable development.
