November 2023 Signature Drive: 200 signatures needed!
Carver Concerned Citizens needs 200 signatures for a petition for a special town meeting on battery storage safety!
Under the law, 200 voters can require the Town to hold a Special Town Meeting. The Special Town Meeting will give residents a chance vote on two General By-laws to improve the safety of industrial-scale Large Battery Storage Projects. Cranberry Point is proposing a 150 megawatt lithium ion battery storage facility in a residential neighborhood in the Fosdick Road-Purchase Street area. Help us pass a stronger law to keep our community and water safe from these Large Battery Storage Projects! Sign the petition and ask family and friends!
Send Carver Concerned Citizens direct message on Facebook, call 718-450-5600 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we will come to you!
These General By-laws will ensure the protection of our neighbors, our property values, natural resources and our water from the risk of fire, explosion and toxic gas from large lithium ion battery storage facilities.
Carver Concerned Citizens is going door to door to collect signatures. We need your help with our grassroots campaign and everyone is welcome. We are holding informational sessions at the library for the public to come and ask any questions. Keep in touch for the upcoming dates!
