Hello,

On behalf of the SBCCOG and the American Lung Association, we would like to invite you to the next South Bay Cities Green Task Force Meeting on December 4, 2008.

As your city begins to develop a Climate Action Plan, you will hear the experiences that staff at other cities have gone through to develop their plan and implement related programs.

We will also have a speaker from the Public Policy Institute of California who will share information on Climate Action research.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
