The City of Alexandria invites the public to participate in charting the Citys environmental future at the Eco-City Summit at T. C. Williams High School, on Saturday, May 10. This Summit, scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is part of the Citys Eco-City Alexandria Initiative. The Eco-City Summit will address the development of the Citys first Eco-City Charter, which outlines the guiding principles and foundation for the Citys environmental vision and future. The Summit will provide residents with opportunities to provide feedback, input, and discussion on the Citys draft Eco-City Charter; and to assist in the creation of a draft Environmental Action Plan, which will include concrete environmental actions the City will carry out over the next 10 to 20 years. Mayor Robert Bob Harvey from Waitakere, New Zealand, a pioneer in the field of environmental awareness and community sustainability, will serve as the Summits keynote speaker. Local elected officials, city businesses, and civic organizations will also participate and have the opportunity to share ideas, strategies, and areas of interest for the overall sustainable future of the City.
