Third Annual Sustainable Communities Workshop in Sarasota

We respectfully invite you to join us at the third annual Sustainable Communities workshop on Friday, Dec. 12 and Saturday, Dec. 13. We scheduled the two day workshop to include a Saturday this year to allow more attendance from homeowners and residents that often can't attend our weekday workshops. The agenda will be relevant for residents, neighborhood representatives, and members of the business community, providing updates on the latest policies and technology innovations and hands on strategies for saving energy and water in your homes and businesses.  Please share this notice with members of your neighborhood and other contacts.  Thank you!
