It Just Takes a Minute!

Earlier this year the MVCC sent a letter to the City Council supporting the City's Low Impact Development (LID) ordinance. Our work isn’t done! The LID ordinance is now scheduled to be heard before the City’s Energy and Environment Committee on December 7th at City Hall at 9:00 AM.

Please email Committee Chair Jan Perry at to express your support of this ordinance! If you are available, we urge you to attend the hearing on December 7th and testify in support of LID.

We need to get it passed through this committee and one additional committee before it can be heard before the full City Council. Our continued support is needed! If you can't attend, you can email the Councilmembers on the committee! You can also post about it on their facebook pages to drive awareness in the community. Let them know that this matters to us!

The December 7th meeting is an important step in the adoption of the LID Ordinance. Agendas are posted within 48 hours of the committee meetings. Please check the City Council calendar website on Monday December 6th for an update on the time, location and agenda for the meeting.
