Leominster Credit Union joins in on environmental-efficiency program
LEOMINSTER, MA (July 20, 2016) — Leominster Credit Union is participating in the Greening the Gateway Cities Program, providing an area where nine trees were planted along with a two-year commitment to care for the trees.
Greening the Gateway Cities is an environmental and energy-efficiency program designed to reduce household heating and cooling energy use by increasing tree canopy cover in urban residential areas in the state’s Gateway Cities.
GGCP is a partnership between the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, the Department of Conservation and Recreation Urban & Community Forestry Program, the Department of Energy Resources and the Department of Housing and Community Development, along with Gateway Cities and local grass-roots organizations.
The program plants 6- to 10-foot trees with a goal of covering 5 percent to 10 percent of the target neighborhoods in new tree canopy cover.
Leominster was one of the 26 cities selected to be a part of this program.
