‘Clean Transportation’ Listening Session Tuesday in Wading River

State officials will hold a listening session on cleaner, safer, and more reliable low-carbon transportation at a meeting in Wading River on Tuesday.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Department of Transportation, and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority have been hosting meetings throughout the state.

In his 2018 State of the State address, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo directed agencies to promote a public conversation around low-carbon transportation policy development.

"The clean transportation listening sessions are designed to engage stakeholders with diverse interests and concerns in discussion of the economic and social considerations for deploying clean transportation options, opportunities to enhance environmental and public health benefits through a modernized transportation system, how innovative, low-carbon transportation can enhance quality of life and boost economic competitiveness, and what policies and programs may help advance a clean transportation future," a press release said. 

The listening session in Wading River will be held at East Wind at 5720 Route 25A from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is open to the public. The Athena Consulting Group has organized the discussion. To register, click here.
