Thank You for the Traffic Calming steps in Belle Haven + Support for Solar-EV program

Dear Mayor Ohtaki and Council Members,
Iím writing to express support and gratitude for the following consent calendar items on the City Council agenda tonight:

  * Adopt a Resolution No. 6445 authorizing the installation of temporary traffic calming modifications in the Belle Haven neighborhood due to construction impacts of ongoing projects in the Bayfront area

  * Approve partnership with Menlo Spark and Grid Alternatives to provide free solar electric systems and electric vehicle charging stations to income qualifying homeowners in Menlo Park

Both of these items will provide substantial quality of life and environmental benefits to the Belle Haven community.

Unrelated to this, I also wanted to share wonderful news from the State of Hawaii. New Legislation Commits Hawaii To Being Carbon Neutral By 2045<https://cleantechnica.com/.../new-legislation-commits-hawaii-to-being-carbon-neutral-...>. The state also adopted two companion policies that make the funds derived from carbon offsets available to plant more trees in the islands; and require new building projects to consider sea level rise in engineering decisions. This is a great example of local leadership recognizing the risks of climate change and pro-actively adopting policies to address those risks. Hawaii is the first state to adopt these goals, but surely not the last.

Warm regards,
Diane Bailey
