Public Workshops on Sustainable Building
Residents invited to community workshops
The Town of Portola Valley invites residents to community workshops on sustainable building. In April 2008, the Town held a Home Energy Conservation and Green Design Workshop as one of many steps it is taking to respond to the challenge of climate change. Based on the outcomes of that workshop and the adoption of the new Sustainability Element of the General Plan, the Town is now working on programs to address the sustainability of new construction, major remodels and existing homes in Portola Valley.
The workshops will be held on the following dates in the Town Center Community Hall.
Saturday, February 28, 2009 - 10 a.m. to noon
Sunday, March 15, 2009 - 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The workshop will include presentations and small, breakout discussion groups. The discussion groups will offer participants the opportunity to provide feedback on specific areas of greatest interest. While the format of each will be the same, input from the first workshop will be considered in finalizing the agenda for the second workshop.
We hope you can join us and look forward to your participation and input!
