As a follow up to my last several emails on the topic of the City’s Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP), I wanted to let you know that I’ll be bringing the new “ESAP-2” (covering 2011-2014) to council on April 10th. The council meeting starts at 6:30pm, and I’ll let you know when I have a better sense of the timing of ESAP-2 within the agenda. It would be great to have you make any positive comments about adopting ESAP-2.
Thanks to those of you who showed up at any of the last 4 Council Environmental Sustainability Committee (CESC) meetings to provide input on ESAP-2!
An agenda and staff memo will be posted to the City’s sustainability web site by COB on April 5th.
— Background on ESAP --
Largely based on the 2008 Environmental Sustainability Task Force recommendations, the City Council adopted an Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP) in March 2009 to serve as a road map for achieving the City's short- and long-term sustainability goals. The ESAP identified 25 initiatives for completion between 2008 and 2011, most of which are completed or nearing completion. During CESC meetings in April, May, and December 2011, and February 2012, the committee solicited public input about which sustainability activities to pursue over the next few years and include in ESAP-2.
I hope to see you at the meeting, and please feel free to spread the word!
I am personally grateful for your continued support in making Mountain View as sustainable as possible.
