“With a great deal of respect for my predecessor, David Turcotte, I have accepted the role as Chair of the Green Building Commission (GBC). Here in Lowell we have the fortunate combination of dedicated public servants, a great pool of talent, and citizens who can contribute to making Lowell a truly sustainable city. The GBC’s intent is to help to create awareness, provide technical expertise and to coordinate efforts to promote energy conservation and long term sustainability goals. The GBC will work to achieve to reduce costs and lowering environmental impacts. By working together, the public and private sector, as well as homeowners, can and will achieve this goal. This web site describes our activities and upcoming events. It also identifies some of the things you can do to live, work and play smarter – and greener – in Lowell."
