Uniquely threatened by climate change but well positioned to think big, the City of Menlo Park began work in July 2019 to craft a new Climate Action Plan (CAP). Through a cooperative effort, Menlo Park City Council, staff, commissioners, and community studied and boldly adopted aggressive new measures in July 2020.

The session, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 15, from 3:30 to 5:00 pm, includes the story of this journey as well as lessons learned and models for other cities to follow. Register online.

Featuring:

-Menlo Park Councilmembers Ray Mueller & Betsy Nash
-Menlo Park Sustainability Manager Rebecca Lucky
-Menlo Park Environment Quality Commissioners Josie Gaillard & Tom Kabat
-Menlo Spark Executive Director Diane Bailey

Has CAP considered white roof painting throughout our city? Not just for city buildings but homes as well. There is good evidence of heat reduction in rural as well as urban areas.
