Council adopts Stretch Code for future construction

(Continued)

By adopting the Stretch Code, Amesbury has now met three of the five criteria, Scorzoni said. The city has already provided zoning for renewable energy facilities by creating a solar overlay district in town, and according to Scorzoni, the city has also finalized an expedited permitting process for those facilities.

Mayor Thatcher Kezer said he and the council would be working toward the two remaining requirements in the coming year, and the goal is to have all five requirements met by the next round of Green Community applications, which will take place in November.
