Abstract

Our IQP tracks the progress and implementation of the Green Communities Act at city, town, and state levels. We worked with city officials from Worcester, the DOER, and the Town of Douglas Massachusetts to examine the obstacles communities must overcome to achieve Green Communities status. This project is a guide to the feasibility of Green Communities adoption on a town level. We examined financial, political and economic issues that affect the perceptions of the Act among Massachusetts residents.
