St. Louis County “Green and Growing” Public Engagement Event

From Citizens for Modern Transit:

St. Louis County has embarked on a comprehensive effort to lead a sustainable transformation of the St. Louis Region.  As part of the County’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy (EECS) that is being developed with funding received from the Federal Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) stimulus program, St. Louis County is developing:

·         A greenhouse gas emissions inventory and forecast for government operations as well as community impact;

·         A Short-Term (3 year) EECS Plan to most meaningfully allocate $8.2M of EECBG funding towards sustainable initiatives that target energy efficiency, green jobs and economic development, reducing GHG emissions, and leveraging multiple funding opportunities;

·         A Long-Term Sustainable Initiatives Framework Plan that will guide the creation and implementation of interdepartmental and community-wide sustainable projects, programs and policies into the foreseeable future.

Come learn about, comment on, and add to the proposed sustainable projects, programs, and policies that St. Louis County is considering for implementation.  Please bring a friend and join us at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center from 5:30 to 8:30pm on Thursday, October 1st
