Alameda goes green: A timeline

Alameda goes green: A timeline

Michele Ellson

Five years ago, city leaders adopted a plan aimed at reducing Alameda’s carbon footprint. And community members formed a group, Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda, to help promote the plan’s emission reduction goals and gain the public’s help in reaching them. This Wednesday, April 24, the city and CASA are teaming up once more to celebrate their achievements at a Climate Protection Forum, where they will highlight the results of a Greenhouse Gas Emissions report, and spotlight local climate heroes. They’ll also offer the story of an Alameda couple that’s making a big commitment to live in a small urban footprint, and provide ways residents and local business owners can get reduce their own carbon footprint. The forum takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Albert H. DeWitt Officers Club, 641 West Redline Avenue on Alameda Point, and it’s free and open to the public. Separately, the city is hosting its first-ever Arbor Day tree planting event at 11 a.m. Friday, April 26 on the median near 3200 Encinal Avenue. Until then, here’s a list of milestones in the city’s effort to be more green.
