Cool Cities Initiative Advisory Committee

CoolCitiesIn January 2009, Mayor Niebur signed the Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement, and he appointed members to the Cool Cities Initiative Advisory Committee with approval of the City Council.

The committee provides advice to the City and to Edwardsville residents on ways to decrease carbon emissions, through such means as energy-efficient building practices and existing building upgrades, recycling, use of low-emission transportation options, native planting landscaping, and renewable sources of energy. The committee meets on the third Thursday of every month.
