In response to City Council's 2007/08 work plan item, the Green Team presented the Working Toward A Greater, Greener Manhattan Beach (PDF) report during the November 20, 2007 Council meeting. The Green Team led the research and preparation of this report and was comprised of team members across the City, including former Police Chief, Rod Uyeda; Public Works Director, Jim Arndt; Community Development Director, Richard Thompson; Finance Director, Bruce Moe and Assistant to the City Manager, Lindy Coe-Juell. This comprehensive 2008 report documented the City's environmentally friendly practices and identified other "best management" practices that the City considered adopting to enhance environmental programs. This report also identified opportunities for resident involvement. The Green Team presentation may be viewed via the webcast of the city's November 20th, 2007 Council meeting.
