    We’re thrilled at the passage of the policy! Next step for Citizens for a Green Scarborough is a celebration party and development of an education campaign for the general public. Passage was helped tremendously by the information Councilor Karen D’Andrea compiled from recent conversations with other towns with similar policies.
