TODAY'S AGENDA

 

Great Green Spaces Flier

Want to help your neighborhood maximize green space and be more climate resilient? Want to make the best and most equitable use of Measure A and Prop 68 funds for local parks?

Join us for a hands-on workshop on the Climate-Smart Cities tool from the Trust for Public Land on how to optimize your neighborhood green spaceand add to it where it's needed most. We'll also have updates on our committees' work on community oil drilling, trees, water, environmental health, and more, plus time to share what YOU are up to!

The Trust for Public Land has created a user-friendly tool to help city leaders and residents design, fund, and build climate-smart parks and green spaces to provide the most equitable and environmental bang for the buck. Learn to use this tool to create and enhance neighborhood “green infrastructure” serving four objectives: Connect (trails and transit lines to connect us), Cool (provide shade in key areas), Absorb (reduce flooding and recharge drinking water supplies while saving energy for water management), and Protect (strategically place green space to buffer cities from climate hazards).
