Environment and Energy Efficiency Committee
The committee shall research energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in Watertown; advise and assist municipal officials and employees in ensuring compliance with relevant national, regional, and state laws, regulations, and programs that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; review and make recommendations about policies, procedures, activities and facilities of departments, boards or agencies of the Town as they relate to energy conservation and emissions reduction; provide information, referrals, guidance and technical assistance to individuals, public agencies, businesses and organizations in matters relating to energy conservation and emissions reduction; whenever possible and desirable, coordinate activities of other local groups organized for similar purposes.

The Watertown Public Arts and Culture Committee’s mission is to provide access to arts and culture to all Watertown residents and visitors through inclusive public projects that honor and engage cultural experiences across generations, identities, and geographies. We believe in the revelatory power of arts and culture to encourage contemplation, inspire new ideas, and spark dialogue.
