Councilmember David Lim is proud to co-host a Town Hall Meeting on sustainability and water conversation in conjunction with the Sierra Club, Sustainable San Mateo County, and the Tuolumne River Trust. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 20, 2010 at San Mateo City Hall from 7 to 9 PM.
Designed as a forum to share ideas on sustainability with everyone in the San Mateo community, the meeting will feature a night of prominent speakers on sustainability issues, as well as tables set up by non-profit organizations and local businesses committed to creating more sustainable communities.
Sierra Club Board Member Rafael Reyes and noted water conservation expert Peter Drekmeier will give talks on how to create more sustainable communities. Councilmember Lim will give updates on City efforts to reduce the City’s carbon footprint, and on City initiatives to provide financial incentives to homeowners to become more environmentally friendly.
The first 50 residents in attendance will receive a special complimentary gift from RethinkWaste. Additionally, door prizes and other surprises will be given out throughout the evening, including a compost bin that Councilmember Lim will personally set up at the home of the winner.
“I am excited and honored to partner with local non-profits and small business owners to help share ideas on sustainability with our neighbors,” said Councilmember Lim. “Reducing our carbon footprint is an important goal for the City of San Mateo, and this evening promises to be both educational and entertaining for everyone in attendance.”
