Public Will Soon Be Invited to Suggest Initiatives

Read the Draft Sustainability Introduction and Goals.

Learn about Sustainability Advisory Board Members.

As you may recall from previous bulletins, the City has launched a sustainability planning effort aimed at releasing a blueprint for environmental, economic, and social action by Earth Day 2010. To further this goal, the City Manager has appointed an exceptional advisory board (see their bios HERE) and convened working groups composed of City staff and experts. Our sustainability planners have produced a preliminary set of goals that will help frame specific policy initiatives, and we intend to solicit public input through meetings and a web-based submission process. You can review the draft introductory statement and goals HERE. We expect to have our first public session in September. More details to come.
