Sustainability Community Working Groups Kick Off

More than 60 people showed up for Wednesday night’s Community Working Group meetings for the Golden Sustainability Initiative.  We watched a video about some of the cool things happening in Salt Lake City, talked as a large group for a bit about the working groups and the process, and then broke up into the seven individual working groups:  renewable energy/energy efficiency, water, green building, transportation, economic health, recycling/waste reduction, and education/communication.  I am really impressed and pleased that so many folks are willing to commit some effort to make our Sustainability Initiative happen.  The community working groups have about six weeks to complete a first draft with recommendations about the proposed goals and a recommended action plan.  The working groups will finish their efforts by mid-summer or so, which should give city council enough time to consider the recommendations and make decisions before we start the 2008 budget process.
