I was asked to give a presentation on the above topic to the Reform Club tonight about 830 PM at the American Legion Post 8. I believe that this subject matter is little understood in New Rochelle and that GreeNR was passed by CIty Council without educating the public on the far-reaching implications of the City’s decision to “partner” with ICLEI. I believe that properly understood, this partnership is the most significant change in New Rochelle since the City was incorporated in 1899.
I will make a slide presentation of about 20 minutes with handouts and then hold a Q&A for about 10 minutes after. I will then stick around for anyone who has additional questions.
Having put a good deal of time into the research for this presentation I am hoping to give it more than once. Towards that end, it is my hope that representatives from various neighborhood associations and civic groups might attend and evaluate the presentation with an eye towards inviting me to make the presentation to other organizations in New Rochelle.
Material for the presentation will be drawn, in part, from the following series in ICLEI:
