Climate Change Workshop 2/23 Still Open

From MTC:

"If you could not attend the Climate Change Workshop on Friday, Feb. 16th at the MTC/ABAG headquarters, RSVP’s are being accepted for an identical, second workshop this Friday, Feb. 23rd from 1 to 4 PM in the Metrocenter Auditorium at 101 8th Street, Oakland, across from the Lake Merritt BART station. The second workshop was added because of the overwhelming response to the first workshop.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP to the event via e-mail at or by calling 510.817.5706. The RSVP deadline is Thursday, February 22 at 12 noon.

Those who cannot attend can listen to an audiocast of the workshop on the MTC Web site at and can submit comments via-email to

The purpose of the workshop is to hear your ideas and get your reaction to a set of strategies that are being explored by the four regional agencies: the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District), the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) who are working together as the Joint Policy Committee (JPC).

The meeting agenda will include a short background presentation on global warming and the Bay Area, a group discussion on the attached set of questions and, after a break, a discussion using your proposals for specific action that should be taken by the four regional agencies. We will also get your input through written comments during the workshop.

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to either seeing you on Friday, February 23 or reading the comments you submit at "
