Great news about Raleigh Cool Cities!

Our Raleigh Cool Cities event last night was a great success! Over 100 people came to show their support of Raleigh signing the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement.

Earlier in the day came even better news. After several months of discussion, the city's Environmental Advisory Board made a favorable recommendation on Cool Cities to the City Council.

The issue will be up at the 1 PM City Council meeting next Tuesday. Here are some ways you can help:

1) Contact the City Council by phone, e-mail, or any other way you might want:

-You can go here to send a message to the City Council through our easy to use Action Alert system. The link provides background on the issue as well as a target message that you can either edit or send as is to the members of the City Council. If you sign up you will also receive future messages about how you can help on environmental issues in North Carolina (usually fewer than 2 e-mails per month.)

-If you don’t want to sign up for the Action Alert system you can send a message directly to Council members. Contact info is available here.

2) Attend the City Council meeting on Tuesday to show your support. The agenda is not out yet but the City Manager’s office says this will be discussed at the 1 PM meeting on Tuesday, August 7th. City Council meetings are held at the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex, 222 W. Hargett St. We will have stickers for folks there looking to show their support of the Cool Cities program!
