Come Support Riverside’s Green Action Plan

September 21, 2009 at 10:26 pm Leave a comment

 At this Tuesday’s council meeting (Sept. 22nd at 6:30 p.m.), we have another historic evening planned. First, we will be presenting our updates to the Green Action Plan.  Director Bridgett Luther, from the State of California’s Dept. of Conservation, will be there to provide an update on the states working with the City of Riverside. We also will be presenting the official logo of the Emerald City Program, which was designed by our own graphic artist.

 Then the real business of the new action plan begins with the approval of an Energy High Efficiency Loan Program, which is our version of the AB-811 program many of you have been following. The Riverside version is unique and we believe will be the new model for the state and the nation because of its focus on energy efficiency first.

 Our long anticipated partnership with UCR for a California Research Initiative for Solar Energy will begin with the passage of an energy innovation grant to begin funding.

 Finally Mayor Loveridge and the Transportation Committee will be recommending a pass sale agreement with the RTA, which will subsidize a bus pass program for Riverside Residents.

 It’s a very full evening and we hope to see you all there to show one and all that Riverside is still committed to sustainable and green initiatives, now more than ever.  

 If you have any questions or need more information, please give me a call. See you tomorrow!
