Watts Earth Day 2018

LOS ANGELES, C.A. -- Tomorrow, Saturday, April 20, the Watts Clean Energy and Air Committee will host their inaugural Earth Day Celebration at Watts City Hall The centerpiece of the event will be the groundbreaking of the MegaWatts Solar Project, a 6 kilowatt solar installation that is the first phase of a larger project to bring solar power to the community. The panels will be installed by GRID Alternatives on the north structure of the Church and will generate enough electricity to cover 85% of St. John’s average utility bill. The celebration will also feature informational booths, a teach in about home gardening and recycling in Watts, and speeches from leaders in South LA.

What: The Watts Clean Air and Energy Committee presents Earth Day 2018

“It means a lot to me, the community,” Frazier said. “This is something I have always longed to be a part of, to partner with other community members to enhance our community, to have better things for our community, to educate our community on who they are.”

The United Methodist Church in Watts hasn’t announced yet when the new community garden on its property will be up and running. But introducing their plans at the first annual Earth Day event was the seed to set the process in motion, and with care from the community, the hope is that it will thrive.

WATTS Team,

 

 

https://backbonecap.com/backbone-capital-assists-transom-capital-in-acquisition-of-critigen/

 

This focused on land use development.  Opportunity Zone!! 9 trillion dollars worth in USA.

 

Critigen was a startup inside of a large Engineering Firm  Ch2mHill .  This Ch2mHill was acquired two years ago by Jacobs Engineering.

 

Critigen was a sole source contract for Ch2mHill to address that Engineering Services where becoming Software Companies.  This is well documented with AEC Hackathon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3U7uWmMo5M

 

This is where I am attempting to Place Watts Rising Conversation as a Civic Engagement Interface into our physical environment.  Chapter 2 of VCAP is Infrastructure Utility Systems.

 

Attached is City Board Motion for San Diego looking at Infrastructure management (Chapter 2 VCAP) with SAP the system used by LACCD that e7 plugged into, and System adopted by DOD/USACE (DATA STANDARD LA RIVER, Measure W WaterShed) for workorder Management System.  This SAP system is far away from VCAP an integrated approach; because a Dashboard has nothing to do with Alignment.  It is focused on projected milestones.  VCAP is focused on alignment; what Tyronne said Old System New System.

 

Please see the scale of investment, attached Board Motion; City of San Diego in the SAP Infrastructure System headed up by Sempra an Investor Owned Utility vs Public Owned Utility like LADWP.

 

This is the thinking Watts Clean Air and Energy must share with LADWP Commissioner.  This is what is necessary to build the Smart Grid Infrastructure and workforce development model Dr. Carson expects from Jobs+ program he unfolded last week at Nickerson Garden, Watts.

 

Capital Asset Management is at core of HUD initiative Jordan Downs and Watts Rising.  Link at top of email.

Michael,

Have you used this ESRI partner product before and what does it take to
deploy it?

What resources are available to deploy it and what are you proposing WCAEC
do with this?

Which Industries and Services are you prescribing for the mission of WCAEC?

You are invited!: 2/27 The Leap LA Coalition #MobilizeLA! Campaign

Created by kenneth wyrick, last modified by kenneth wyrick 28 Feb 2019, at 05:27 PM

Hello Members of the Watts Clean Air & Energy Committee....

I wanted to share this recently announced information with you about some of the work that PSR-LA is working on as part of a climate justice coalition we help convene called The Leap LA.  Would be great to have you join us! Please see invitation info below as well as background information at the bottom of this email. 

The Leap LA is inviting Watts Clean Air & Energy Committee to our #MobilizeLA Campaign Launch on February 27th at 3pm to call for a citywide Climate Emergency Mobilization Department.  Please read more about our efforts below, check out our event flyer and, if available, please RSVP at: http://bit.ly/2SZ3DtG.

Final MoblizeLA Campaign Flyer (1).jpg

Background on The Leap LA and the CEMD:
I’m reaching out on behalf of Leap L.A. - a climate justice coalition with the goal to transition the nation’s second-largest city off fossil fuels by 2025, to update you on our recent efforts with the Climate Emergency Mobilization Department (CEMD) CF 18-0054 introduced by City Council last year.

The CEMD would develop, coordinate, and track implementation of a comprehensive Climate Emergency Action Plan (CEAP) to rapidly reduce citywide greenhouse gas emissions, sequester historic and present emissions, and organize a broader mobilization of public resources and communities to transform all sectors at emergency speed and to restore a safe climate at all levels of government. We see this as an opportunity to model what a justice-based Green New Deal could look like on a municipal level, as parallel plans and proposals develop federally.

The City Council also approved a $500,000 appropriation to be used for a Climate Change Emergency Mobilization Program with the intention to use funds as seed money to analyze and start up the CEMD. We are asking City Council to support a targeted Community Assemblies process that would culminate in a city-wide Assembly, and for initial staffing of the CEMD.

We believe that the effective creation of this proposed city department could ensure that frontline and low income communities who have suffered for decades from systemic environmental racism could benefit first from a clean energy economy.  

What you can do:
Attend our Campaign Launch this upcoming Wednesday February 27 at 3pm to learn more about the CEMD at SCOPE located at 1715 W. Florence Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90047.

We are eager to start engaging you in the CEMD campaign moving forward. Please let me know if you all are interested and if you have any questions.  I can be reached at 323-646-7300. Look forward to connecting again with you soon!

In unity, 

~Lizette

Which study did you mean from Green Peace?  

where can i find the Greenpeace report?

does it include the greater Watts Learning districts?

A recent Greenpeace investigation revealed more than 2,000 schools, nurseries, further education centres and after-school clubs are within 150m of roads emitting illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2).  In London, even after extension of the proposed ultra low emission zone (ULEZ) in 2019 there will still be 950 schools exposed to illegal levels of NO2.  Similar situations are replicated throughout the UK, making this an urgent public health crisis.

As doctors and health professionals we have a responsibility to promote health, and to advocate on behalf of children most at risk from air pollution.

Support Urban Forests and Take Action

Dear Linda,

An urban forest encompasses all of the trees, both privately and publicly owned, in and around cities. Urban forests are massively beneficial to the environment around them – with capabilities that include reducing the urban heat island effect, improving water supply and quality, increasing jobs, and more! To learn more about the many benefits of an urban forest, click here or watch the video below.

Unfortunately, the City of Los Angeles’ urban canopy is under threat due to badly-enforced tree protection laws, a lack of funding for urban forestry, and diseases and insects such as the Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer, which threaten the health of trees. These factors together put our urban forest at risk, and suggests that the City is at a critical period for potential catastrophic tree canopy cover loss.

But there is hope to reverse these negative impacts on trees in our beloved City. TreePeople has developed a policy tool that will allow YOU to take part in protecting our urban forest – a tool that will allow YOUR voice to be heard loud and clear that “WE SUPPORT URBAN FORESTS.”

TreePeople has been a pioneering leader and a strong advocate for urban forestry at the policy and grassroots levels. We strongly believe that trees in cities are essential infrastructure to protect, support, and sustain our daily life with benefits ranging from providing shade, water, and food to enhancing human health and well-being, community cohesion, and economic growth. We need trees in the City more than ever as we are facing a new norm (e.g., extreme heat, droughts, and fires).

Making great change requires grassroots action. We invite you to take part in that change. Join TreePeople and support an Urban Forest Management Plan for our City and our communities by writing a letter to your councilmember/mayor’s office, donating to the work of TreePeople’s Policy team, and signing our petition. Click here to learn more on how you can make a difference today.

Thank you
TreePeople
