Maine Clean Communities Coalition
Clean Cities Coordinator
Steven Linnell has been the coordinator of the statewide Maine Clean Communities coalition since its designation in 1997. The coalition's greatest achievement so far has been helping the Greater Portland METRO build the first fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling infrastructure in the state, which currently serves 13 CNG transit buses and four CNG school buses. The coalition has also played a role in shaping alternative fuel vehicle policy in the state, helped establish propane and biodiesel infrastructure, and serves as an information resource to public and private fleets.
Along with his role as Clean Cities coordinator, Linnell is the senior transportation planner for the Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG) working mostly with public transit. He also heads up the energy, climate change, and sustainability efforts at GPCOG.
Linnell has a Master of Science in Resource Management and Administration from Antioch College.
