Northampton Now Has A Plan To Reach Carbon Neutrality

David Narkewicz

A western Massachusetts city now has a blueprint to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

The Northampton Climate Resilience and Regeneration Plan addresses both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and also how to handle the change in climate that scientists say is sure to come.

The 63-page plan was approved by the city’s Planning Board late last month.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Wayne Feiden, Northampton’s Director of Planning and Sustainability.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
