The Newsletter of the Franklin Citizens’ Commission on Peak Oil – Franklin, NY


The Franklin Citzens’ Commission on Peak Oil was authorized on December 6th, 2005 by a Town Board Resolution. Our purpose was to assess the needs and resources of the Town of Franklin in the face of Peak Oil, and to report back to the Town Board and to the people of Franklin.

Renamed as Franklin Local Ltd., we are a not-for-profit corporation made up of Franklin residents. We meet once a month, at 7 P.M. in the Town Board Room. All are welcome, to offer questions and help us answer them, to share thoughts and ideas.

Please join us!

We have a number of projects that we hope to move from idea to action:

  • Local food production network
  • Skills and services exchange
  • Goods exchange
  • Ride sharing bulletin board and/or website
  • Farm to School Program for school lunches
  • Community Greenhouses
  • Community Energy Production
  • Community Health Network

In a nutshell, we propose to imagine a more energy efficient habit of living, and to put it to work here in Franklin, for a brighter, more sustainable future.

We hope you will join us!
For meeting times, location and directions, contact us.

You can also join our Peak Oil Awareness Yahoo Group. It’s POA_CNY@yahoogroups.com.

That is, Peak Oil Awareness_Central NewYork. This group fosters discussion of local efforts, potential or ongoing, to deal with the effects of Peak Oil on our communities.
