Here’s another chance to see all the slides shown at the Sustainability Town Hall held on March 7.
Community Scrapbook highlights the sustainability achievements of local organizations and businesses during the last year. These actions are moving our community toward our goals of environmental quality, social equity and economic vitality.
Participants were seated at tables of eight for a fast-paced, interactive Town Hall program that included three parts, each with a presentation from the main stage followed by discussion and activity at the tables. Electronic voting by attendees will determine the direction of our local sustainability efforts in the coming year.
