SAN MATEO COUNTY plans to open an Office of Sustainability to oversee and coordinate countywide stormwater initiatives and centralize sustainability efforts. Jim Eggemeyer, the County's current Director of Planning and Building, has been tapped to launch this initiative which will start July 1, 2014.
Sustainability initiatives include practices and programs to
meet/exceed water quality standards, promote alternative transportation
uses by employees, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, meet trash reduction
targets in the unincorporated areas, and reduce energy consumption.
Looking forward to the work of this new Office!
