On April 10, the Office of Sustainability will host its second Community Meeting to educate and seek public comment on issues related to the development of Silver City’s Sustainability Plan 2030.  The Plan is addressing how we might better prepare for increasing weather risks.  Our first event was held on February 19th, and at least 150 people attended to listen to the NM State Climatologist, Dr. David DuBois, discuss our State’s past and projected changing weather.  Our second event will be held at the Global Resource Center, Wed, April 10, 6:30-8:00 pm.
The event will focus on Public Health.  For the first hour, Mary Stoecker, NMDOH, will facilitate discussion about changing weather and health around a series of questions.  Also, Dr. DuBois is returning at my request because his professional specialty is air quality, including wind-born particulates and pathogens, and he has been working with the NMDOH on related issues.  So for the remaining half hour of the event, Dr. DuBois will present and discuss Drought Impacts on Dust and Health – respiratory issues for children and adults: asthma, allergies & valley fever.
This event is particularly timely, as many of us have loved ones who are suffering during our windy and dusty season.
The event will be video recorded by CATS.  Please see the attached flyer for further information.  There is no charge, and all are welcome.  Contact Terry Timme, terrytimme@gmail.com, with questions.
