A “Green Team” consisting of City Hall staff members will make a special presentation to the South Pasadena City Council next week about the city’s environmental initiatives.

The hour-long study session, which will precede the city council’s regular bimonthly meeting, is scheduled on Wednesday, Dec. 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Amedee O. “Dick” Richards, Jr., City Council Chambers, located at 1424 Mission St.

The Green Team and its presentation are rooted in the city council’s 2013 Strategic Planning Session, during which the council directed city staff to identify goals to increase South Pasadena’s energy efficiency on both the city and community level, according to City Clerk Sally Kilby. The city’s Natural Resources and Environmental Commission reviewed the team’s ideas and set priorities that the team would focus on under the council’s direction, Kilby explained.

The Green Team is expected to outline the various energy efficiency initiatives the city has implemented and what related measures it could plan for the future, Kilby said, adding that the team will seek direction from the council on energy conservation and green initiatives aimed at updating the city’s 2014-15 financial year work program.

Residents and stakeholders who have any questions about Wednesday’s study session are encouraged to call Assistant City Manager Hilary Straus at (626) 403-7214, or e-mail her at hstraus@southpasadenaca.gov. Water Conservation

Analyst Debby Figoni can be reached at (626) 403-7311 and e-mailed at dfigoni@southpasadenaca.gov.
