The Planning Commission hosted a series of workshops in 2012 on a number of issues relating to sustainability, including greenhouse gas emissions, energy and fossil fuel use, recycling and waste reduction, green building, low-impact stormwater management, social equity, and urban forestry. These workshops were interactive community conversations exploring the topics, including identifying what can be done, what is important to residents, and how best to respond as a City. The workshops informed city staff and the Planning Commission in the development of the Energy and Sustainability Element
The PowerPoints of these workshops are available online.
