The next meeting of the Carbon Neutral Neighborhoods group is this Thursday October 28 from 5:30-7:30 in the Boards & Commissions room L2-80 at City Hall. We will present reports on successful City plans, programs, and policies from our Carbon Neutral Neighborhoods perspective.
We encourage City staff and members of the other Carbon Neutral groups to join us at our meetings as we consider the Comp Plan, Neighborhood Plans, and City Departmental work plans as they are being revised from a sustainable neighborhood perspective. Our meetings are open and you are all cordially invited to participate.
At our Sept 21 meeting we discussed what issues our Carbon Neutral Neighborhoods group could focus on in the future, in order to encourage City staff and elected officials to continue their support of our Carbon Neutral future. We decided to begin by exploring what programs the City does especially well right now to move us along a carbon neutral pathway. Many of these programs are listed on Seattle's Office of Sustainability and Environment website. We broke up into six groups to do more research and will report on our findings at the Oct 28 meeting. A complete Sept 21 meeting summary, including the working groups we formed, is attached.
Some people in our group have requested remote meeting access in order to keep travel down. We have set up a "seattleneighbors" Skype account. If there is only one person, we'll be able to do video - if there are more, it will be audio only. If you plan to attend this Thursday's meeting remotely, please contact Gene Homicki for login details.
