Please share this with all of your current EAC members, save the day, and identify your most pressing issues. We suggest that each EAC select a couple of members to represent their priorities and learn from others in the region.
The local EAC Summit provides an accessible opportunity to learn about what EAC's in the area are doing by sharing their knowledge and exploring opportunities to collaborate and make each EAC more effective in its mission. Three years ago a group of EACs in the metro west townships got together for our first micro-regional gathering. In an informal setting, we each selected our most pressing issue for discussion and shared our approaches for taking them - learning from each other, exchanging information and sharing our knowledge and experience.
Darby Creek Valley Association and Haverford Township EAC are pleased to co- host this gathering in which EAC representatives are invited to select a high priority topic related to our environment and mission. Examples include:
- Climate Change and Energy - topics like procuring green energy, greenhouse gas inventories/climate action planning, conservation, going plug-in or full electric, promoting resident awareness and action.
- Water Quality and New Stormwater Permit Requirements - achieving TMDL goals.
- Rain Gardens - developing programs for education and broad implementation.
- Other Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) - e.g., integrating permeable paving into development ordinances.
- Trees and Trails
For most of us, attending the statewide EAC meetings are not possible and this event provides a more accessible venue to learn from others and hone our craft.
Please RSVP by September 29th with who will be attending so we can accommodate all with a light dinner. We can certainly try to accommodate later RSVPs.
