Boulder’s Energy Future project speaker series continues
To help inform residents, business leaders and other interested individuals about issues surrounding climate change and energy, the City of Boulder has launched a spring speaker series as part of the Boulder’s Energy Future project. The city will host guest lecturers and partner with community organizations to highlight topics that are related to the goals, opportunities and challenges of Boulder’s Energy Future.
The following City of Boulder hosted events free and open to the public. These events will be recorded and will be available on the Energy Future website after the event date.
More speaker series dates are possible. New dates, times and locations will be announced and posted on the project website under “Events” as soon as they are available.
Walk-In Wednesday public meeting rescheduled for April 25
The Walk-In Wednesday Power Hour public meeting originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 18 has been moved back one week to 3 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, at the West Boulder Senior Center, 909 Arapahoe Ave.
The City of Boulder is hosting these free meetings so the public can meet with staff to discuss all questions related to the Energy and Climate Future project. People from the city involved with the project will be available to answer questions, listen to suggestions and collect feedback.
The city is committed to involving the community in the ongoing research and analysis associated with the potential creation of a city-owned electric utility, and Walk-In Wednesdays will be just one of several opportunities for the public to provide feedback on the project in 2012.
Information on all upcoming project related events and current news is available at www.BoulderEnergyFuture.com.
