The City’s Climate Change Working Group will be hosting a public forum on October 14th at the Civic Center Library Auditorium (365 F Street) from 5-6:30pm. The forum will feature a presentation by Dr. Emily Young on the San Diego Foundation’s recent report, “San Diego, 2050 Is Calling. How Will We Answer?,” which reviews the impacts from the region’s changing climate and opportunities to manage it. The forum will also provide the community with an opportunity to provide feedback on the Climate Change Working Group’s draft recommendations to help reduce Chula Vista’s carbon footprint. Potential recommendations include increasing incentives for indoor water conservation, implementing a Zero Waste Plan, delivering more “green” electricity through the grid, and designating preferred parking for alternative fuel vehicles. The first 20 attendees will receive a free indoor water/energy savings kit!

For more information, please contact the City’s Conservation Section at 619-409-3893 or conservation@chulavistaca.gov.
