Wayland's Net Zero Building Policy
During 2018 and 2019, MAPC provided technical assistance to the Town of Wayland on their municipal buildings policy to advance net zero in their municipal facilities. MAPC worked with municipal staff and the Town's Energy and Climate Committee to develop a suite of resources to assist with implementation of their new high performing / low-carbon building policy. This project was funded by a Planning Assistance Grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
The Town of Wayland is a stable and progressive community. It is characterized by a legacy of civic engagement and a commitment to citizen self-governance, advised and supported by professional staff. Wayland has undertaken numerous planning and project efforts related to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and fostering clean energy and sustainable development over the years, many in conjunction with MAPC.
