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 completed Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventories, and continue to work on climate action plans, vulnerability assessments, and planning other actions. We were awarded Bronze Level Certification in April 2023. Town residents can follow the Town's progress and plans toward achieving GHG targets and other goals in these pages. Subscribe below to get updates.

Starting in February 2023, monthly Task Force meetings are planned for the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at 7 PM via Google Meet.  If a conflict arises, meetings will be held the next day. Check the schedule below.

  • The Town of Hurley is taking steps to become better prepared for a changing climate. The town created the ClimateSmart Task Force and became part of the NYS initiative. 

  • As tasks are completed, points are received. The CSTF earned enough points to obtain Bronze Certification in 2023.

  • Hurley's ClimateSmart Assessment was just completed in 2021. By using this tool the CSTF identified actions the town has already completed; what actions are in process; and how best to prioritize these tasks for achieving Silver certification for the Town of Hurley.
