Richmond Highlands Neighborhood meeting Tuesday, Feb 22 at The Rec Center

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Next Tuesday, February 22, is our neighborhood meeting, and we have a pretty neat presenter. Richard Wells from SustainableWorks will join us to tell us about a program that has just been done in Lynnwood/Edmonds, and is now coming to Shoreline. 

"SustainableWorks is a community-based non-profit created solely to help home and small commercial building owners, like you, with home retrofits to reduce energy use while also creating quality jobs."

They will be offering low-cost home energy audits - "Thanks to federal stimulus funds and utility support, your audit will cost only $95 (fully refundable if we don't recommend any improvements) and includes installation of CFL light bulbs, shower heads and faucet aerators to start saving immediately." (this type of audit apparently usually runs about $600)

"An energy consultant will review the findings with you and suggest the most cost-effective steps to reduce your energy use. You will only select the extent of energy saving activities and costs that you are comfortable with."

"We coordinate everything - contractors, financing, project management and final inspection - to make the process as easy as possible for you." They do kind of a buy-in-bulk with service contractors, which lowers the cost for everybody - for instance, one electrician could service 4 homes on your street with no travel time.

We would also like to talk about neighborhood mini-grant possibilities, and share some information about public art in Shoreline, and the possibilities for Richmond Highlands. Hope you can make it!!

On March 22, we will host Brian Schultz, Executive Director for the Shoreline Public Schools. 

The topic is the Shorewood construction project - timeline, traffic impacts, neighborhood impacts, etc. If you are interested in a heads-up concerning the upcoming construction, this is the place to be!

Richmond Highlands Neighborhood Association now meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month, 7 pm at the Rec Center, 16544 Fremont Ave N.
