Dear Friend of Sustainable Tucson,

We are pleased to announce a special agenda for our October General Meeting on Tuesday, October 14:

At 6pm, we invite you to join us at Tucson’s Mayor and Council meeting in support of a proposed rainwater harvesting ordinance for commercial developments,  This ordinance is a common-sense first step towards managing our water more sustainably, and would be the first of its kind in the nation.  It is by no means a given that the City Council will approve the ordinance, so our voices are crucial at this meeting.

In a generous adjustment, city staff have placed the rainwater harvesting ordinance at the top of the evening’s agenda (after other standing business), so please come by 6pm.  Location: 255 W Alameda St., 1st floor, east side of the building.

More information on the ordinance:

Council Agenda page (will have agenda and background information by October 9, click on “M&C Regular Agenda”)

After the ordinance is addressed, we’ll adjourn to La Cocina restaurant (186 N Meyer Ave) to celebrate two years of hard work and play with Sustainable Tucson. We invite you to come whether you were there at the very first living room brainstorming sessions, or whether this is your first meeting!  The plan is to socialize, celebrate, and eat La Cocina’s excellent food–a buffet will be available for $6.  We need a head count to know how much food to order, so please RSVP by Oct. 13 to Vera Lander via email, veralander *at* yahoo.com (include your phone number in the email).

We hope you’ll join us for these events!
