**MARCH 5: Sustainability Town Hall/ NMSEA Los Alamos Chapter Meeting*

8am-12pm at Crossroads Bible Church (97 East Road)

This Town Hall is being organized by the County, and is your chance to 
let the local government hear your views on sustainability. I know you 
have them. Energy, water, food, transportation, forests, air, trails… 
these are but a few of the sustainability topics you can bring to this 
meeting. You will be able to ask questions of the County, as well.

Tom Nagawiecki, the County’s Environmental Services Specialist, is a 
good person, and he will be taking notes to pass on to the Council. I 
urge you to attend and let the County know that we care passionately 
about sustainability in a myriad of forms.

/The County has focused on sustainability for several years, with a 
strong push coming in 2005 with the adoption of “enhance environmental 
quality and sustainability” as one of the County Council six core 
strategic goals.  In response to this goal, County staff launched the 
Environmental Sustainability Initiative in 2008, which narrowed the 
broad concept of sustainability to focus areas important to our local 
community. After two years of action it is time to take a step back, 
analyze our progress, and reexamine our plans for the future./

/On the behalf of the County Council and the Environmental 
Sustainability Board, we would welcome your involvement in this process 
by sharing your thoughts and ideas, and learning about current efforts 
at this Sustainability Town Hall.  As the County moves forward with its 
effort to create our sustainable future we want to be sure we are 
creating a community that can be enjoyed by current and future 
generations. /
