And finally our own Carl Ruiz won the 50/50 drawing for a whopping $528, and his Grandson had a great time also.

PROGRAM: Lorena Cordova and Monica Zech from the City of El Cajon re finalizing the Climate Acton Plan.

The CAP team organized last August to look primarily at sustainability for the next 10-20 years within the City of El Cajon. The team is comprised of professionals from various fields. Their target goals address emission/toxin levels and the need to reduce them for future generations.

State and Federal levels are working on their own areas to give suggestions to interested City Governments. The State mandated getting our levels down to the 1990 levels which we have been in compliance with for some time. The Feds want a 40% reduction in emissions.

The biggest emissions come from traffic.

The Planning Commission will meet to approve/reject/modify whatever the team comes up with, before June 18th. The PC’s recommendation will then go to the City Council and their approval of a final plan is expected at the July 9th City Council meeting.

For more information please go to the City of El Cajon website and click on the link.
