St. Pete Schedules Sustainability Summit
The event, which is open to the public, will include an update on St. Petersburg’s plan for achieving 100 percent clean energy, sessions on lowering energy bills, and other information.
ST.. PETERSBURG – Last December, St. Petersburg became the first city in Florida to commit to 100 percent clean energy.
Since then, city officials have been working on an Integrated Sustainability Action Plan to achieve St. Pete’s sustainability and resiliency initiatives, including a greenhouse gas emissions inventory and a roadmap for achieving 100 percent clean energy.
Now officials have scheduled a sustainability summit to provide an update on the plan and the city’s first greenhouse gas inventory. There will also be displays from local organizations involved in sustainable community programs.
Participants will be able to join discussions about common themes like housing, energy, infrastructure and jobs. Don’t miss the sessions on How to Lower Your Energy Bills with local experts. Officials said this is residents’ chance to let officials know more about their interests, share their ideas, engage in the planning process, and enhance their citizenship. Refreshments will be available.
The free event is 3:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 14) at Child’s Park YMCA, 691 43rd St. S.
