Mountain View Goal Setting Meeting

Mountain View Goal Setting Meeting

This is the City's every-other-year Goal Setting meeting where the new City Council members decide what issues they want to focus on for the next two years.  They usually limit themselves to 3 topics.

It is a public meeting and is usually fairly lightly attended, though this year may be an exception because of the passage of rent control in November.

The reason for putting this on our calendar is to encourage residents to speak out on behalf of GHG reduction.  Almost certainly housing and transportation will be 2 of the chosen topics, so our goal is to make sure that GHG reduction is also on the list.

Children Invited to Write to President-elect Trump

LogoLines.png

Carbon Free Mountain View (CFMV) is hosting a letter writing party for children and parents on Thursday, November 17 from 7:30 - 8:30 PM.  CFMV's mission is to help Silicon Valley reduce its carbon footprint.  Because children will bear the brunt of climate change's impacts, we think it's important for the incoming President to hear directly from them about their concerns.  Participants' letters can be on any topic, not just climate change.  The event will be held in the Lower Social Hall (basement) of the Mountain View Community Center at 201 S Rengstorff Avenue.

Please let us know if you plan to join us: cherie@carbonfreemountainview.org

This letter writing event will be in place of our November general meeting.  Carbon Free Mountain View meets on the third Thursday of every month at the Mountain View Community Center.

Mountain View Council Sustainability Committee Meeting

  • Atrium Conference Room (1st Floor), MV City Hall (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

On Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30 pm, Mountain View city staff will propose a new Environmental Sustainability Action Plan 3 (ESAP-3) for the public and the Council Environmental Sustainability Committee (CESC) to review. This is your opportunity to help us shape the actions the City will undertake over the next 3 years.

The CESC (members: Mayor Showalter, Lenny Siegel, Chris Clark) meets only 2 - 3 times a year, so each meeting is an important opportunity for environmental advocates to speak up for measures they care about. 

Please join us in making a couple recommendations to the Committee, either by e-mail (citycouncil@mountainview.gov) or in person at the meeting.

1) The City should show its commitment to environmental leadership by publicly committing to sign up all the City's electric accounts for Silicon Valley Clean Energy's "100% Renewable" offering as soon as it begins taking service from SVCE.  This would help Mountain View get closer to reaching its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals.  Plus, this early public commitment can be used by SVCE in its outreach to Mountain View residents, and I expect that it will inspire many residents and businesses to follow the City's lead and choose the 100% renewable option.  It may also inspire other nearby cities to step up and make the same commitment, thus having a ripple effect on the residents of those cities as well.

2) Please set a clear expectation that Mountain View will inventory the GHG emissions of the community as a whole every year.  Given the dramatic growth of business and residential construction in Mountain View, meeting our GHG targets is going to be very challenging.  We simply won't be able to manage the process of reducing GHGs if we only check to see how we're doing every two or three years.  Annual tracking of results is a must -- and, according to city staff, it won't cost very much to hire consultants to perform the annual inventory.

You should also feel free to advocate for any other measures you think make sense.  These meetings are typically attended by fewer than 10 members of the public, so your voice can make a real difference.  Members of the public may speak for up to 3 minutes about any item on the agenda and also for 3 minutes during the "Oral Communications" section at the beginning of the meeting.
