I Propose Climate Action Planning

At the top of my list of Recommendations for Policy Guidelines, submitted in October 2016 for FY2018 (July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018) is: Create a new Climate Action Plan for Watertown to address climate change concerns. A climate action plan would include high-level goals as well as focus areas such as transportation and identify steps to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, parking concerns, retrofits to existing buildings, net zero new construction, energy supply, incentives for green roofs, solar panels, stormwater management improvements, zero waste (litter-free) in public spaces, etc.
