As concerns about climate change grow, New York State, Ulster County and the Town of Hurley have initiated programs to mitigate and adapt to this challenge. At the town level this Task Force was formed to advise the Town, create plans, articulate specific goals and complete projects to prepare for changes ahead.


We're working on a  Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory, climate action plans, vulnerability assessments, and planning other actions to achieve Bronze Level Certification. Town residents can follow the Town's progress and plans toward achieving GHG targets and other goals in these pages.

Monthly Task Force meetings take place on the 3nd Tuesday of the month, at 7 PM via Zoom.
