City of Lambertville awarded a sustainability grant


The City of Lambertville, N.J., has received a $2,000 Sustainable Jersey grant funded by the PSEG Foundation to hold a Green Fair Saturday, Sept. 30, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ely Park.

With the theme “We are the Solution,” the fair will focus on the city’s current and future efforts to improve resiliency as well as on ways residents can help mitigate flooding, air and water pollution, reduce air temperatures, and provide habitat for threatened wildlife, especially pollinators. Lambertville Goes Wild and the Lambertville Environmental Commission are partnering to organize the event.

“In Lambertville we are all acutely aware of our city’s vulnerability to the effects of weather extremes that are the new normal and of the growing threats to insects, birds and other species,” said Lambertville Mayor Andrew J. Nowick.

“The fair is an opportunity for residents to learn about the city’s plans to further strengthen our resiliency as well as get updates on the steps we have already taken, such as planting 20 trees and hundreds of perennials at our North Union Street Park in 2022, financed by Sustainable Jersey and the PSEG Foundation.

“We are inviting a diverse group of organizations to participate in the fair, to offer ideas for actions that residents can take to reduce their carbon footprint, air temperatures, and waste, to manage stormwater, and to provide wildlife habitat.

“Our ‘We are the Solution’ fair will enable Lambertville residents and neighboring municipalities to exchange ideas and information about how we can all work together to strengthen our communities. We are honored to receive this grant, and we thank Sustainable Jersey for this wonderful opportunity and for their continued partnership.”
