The Team’s Mission is “to promote and teach civic responsibility and nurture a culture of sustainable living practices in order to strengthen our community.  Sustainable living is achieved through environmental stewardship, economic awareness, and social accountability.”  Please come join us in our efforts to make New Market a more sustainable community.  The Team meets on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at 6:30 p.m. in Town Hall and, we encourage and WELCOME fellow citizen participation!

Community Survey

The team is currently developing an Action Plan and that plan starts with a community survey.  Please click here to take the survey. Hard copies will also be available for pick up and drop off at Town Hall during business hours.  Please take the time and answer the 15 questions regarding various sustainable activities.  Your responses will help the team prioritize the activities we’ll perform in order to become certified as a Sustainable Community.  Possible activities include growing a community garden, developing a community composting program, identifying and constructing community walking and biking trails and developing programs to support a sustainable business community in the Town’s central historic district.
