About the Green Team

The Westfield Green Team is a group of volunteer Westfield department representatives and residents who work with the Mayor and Town Council to develop and implement plans that will make Westfield a more sustainable community.

We tackle  challenges with passion and insights. Here’s how we get involved:

  • Lead and create: Institute Westfield programs that positively impact our quality of life.
  • Consult and recommend: Provide input and recommendations on Town ordinances, policies, and plans so that they align with our pillars. 
  • Educate and connect: Provide education for children and adults on issues related to sustainability, climate change, and conservation.
  • Organize and advocate: Connect and involve Westfield in various local, regional, state, and national opportunities and green movements.
