untitled-61-Edit

On May 9, 2013 Sustainable San Rafael, along with Sustainable Marin, The Marin Environmental Housing Collaborative, The League of Women Voters, The Marin Conservation League and Dominican University sponsored our second forum on the topic of planning the future of our communities in the era of climate change. “Planning the Future We Want (part 2)” drew an energized and attentive crowd of about 200 turned out at Dominican’s Angelico Hall. Click here for pictures from the event (video below.)

This time a panel of experts drilled down into the specific implications of  Plan Bay Area: How it fits into the larger picture of the state’s efforts to reduce GHG emissions and fight climate change . . . How it continues a long history of enlightened local planning to protect Marin’s unique assets . . .Whether or not it threatens local communities’ ability to control environmental impacts and preserve their quality of life. Watch video of the complete event below:

This was the continuation of a discussion of the shape of Marin’s future that started last September 19, 2012 in a full-house forum at the San Rafael Community Center. (Click here to see video of that earlier event.)
