Residents of the town of Potsdam are invited to workshops to help develop the municipality’s comprehensive plan. The ISE hopes that Clarkson will be well represented in this process. We have been working with the town of Potsdam in an effort to align the comprehensive plan with the NYS Climate Smart Communities program. Working with our local municipalities on this program is our strategy for fulfilling Clarkson’s climate resiliency (adaptation) commitment. There will be three workshops that the town has organized. Each meeting will be held in the town hall from 7:00 – 8:30pm.  

·        1/17 - Housing and Neighborhoods / Quality of life

·        1/24 - Business and Economic Development / Land Use

·        1/31 - Infrastructure and Energy

At each workshop participants will be asked to draft statements about the current state, future goals, and implementation strategies for each topic. Attached you will find a letter from town representatives inviting town residents to the meetings. If you would like to give input online, please go to
