This in from Barbara in Sunnyvale:
We in Sunnyvale are awaiting the CO2 Emissions Reduction Report, currently scheduled to be presented to Council on July 10 at 6 PM at a Study Session, prior to the council meeting. The report is expected to contain the results of the audit of greenhouse gas emissions resulting from city operations, options for a base year and reduction target, and an action plan. This report focuses on just city operations.
Council is currently scheduled to act on the report on July 24, during their regularly-scheduled meeting which begins at 7 PM.
The next Cool Cities meeting in Sunnyvale meeting will be July 12 at 7:30 PM in a second floor classroom of Toyota of Sunnyvale (a green-certified business) on El Camino between Hollenbeck and Mary. (Elevator available.)
Like many cities Sunnyvale is starting with city operations. But since city operations account for an average of 3% of a city's emissions it is essential to create the community-wide inventory, target and action plan. Sunnyvale has not signed the Mayors' agreement but the Cool Cities team will be encouraging that. Go Barbara and team!
