Randolph Environmental Guidebook (RTEG)

Environmental Guidebook - Front Cover

The Randolph Township Environmental Guidebook (RTEG) is a living document, subject to annual review, that contains information about contributors to climate change and environmental degradation, and details projects and strategies that can be implemented locally to create positive and measurable change.

Designed to be utilized at different scales, from municipal leadership to volunteer groups, the RTEG is overseen by the Environmental and Landmark Committee and was developed in consultation with Pinto Consulting, LLC. The comprehensive resource contains detailed recommendations for 49 projects across 11 action categories: Air Quality, Climate, Community Engagement, Energy, Food, Housing and Economic Development, Natural Resources Management, Open Space, Transportation, Waste Management, Water.

The Environmental and Landmark Committee and the Township of Randolph are proud to share the RTEG with the community as collaboration between residents and the municipal government is essential for reaching shared goals of sustainability, environmental stewardship, and resiliency. In working together towards these shared goals, the outcomes earned will benefit the entire community in its overall health, wellness, and pride.  

The Vision and Goals for the RTEG have been developed by studying the original goals from the 2006 Randolph Township Master Plan, the 2016 Re-Examination Report, the updated Open Space and Recreation Plan, and Trails Master Plan, as well as other relevant information from the municipal website and publications. These goals include:  

  • Making Randolph More Sustainable and Resilient  
  • Developing and Expanding Partnerships with Municipal Departments, the Board of Education, Non-Profit Entities, Environmental Organizations, and Other Agencies to Promote Sustainability and Environmental Stewardship 
  • Protecting Environmentally Sensitive Land and Habitat 
  • Using and Producing Clean Energy 
  • Managing Stormwater Using Green Infrastructure 
  • Engaging the Community and Create Citizen Stewards 
  • Improving Air and Water Quality  
  • Reducing Waste and Increase Recycling
