TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10 — SMART ENERGY – HOLLAND ENERGY PARK

Holland Energy Park, 1 Energy Park Way, Holland

Resource. Destination. Gateway. Holland’s vision is to be a thriving world class energy efficient city that generates energy cleanly, uses it efficiently and distributes it reliably and affordably. Join us as we hear from the Holland Board of Public Work’s general manager, David Koster, about how Holland Energy Park is helping us to meet our goals in becoming a more sustainable community. The City of Holland’s long-range Community Energy Plan is a 40-year plan to become a world-class leader in energy security, affordability, sustainability and efficiency.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14  — COMMUNITY AND NEIGHBORHOOD – RECYCLING

Herrick District Library, 300 S. River Avenue, Holland

Since the dawn of modern recycling initiatives we have been saying the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. These three Rs have served us well and given us guidelines that are easy to remember and easy to follow. Now comes a new way to think about recycling. We will guide you through the eight Rs and help you be better recyclers and environmental stewards. Part of the Holland area’s America Recycles activities.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 9 — ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT – SUSTAINABLE GOVERNMENT 

Herrick District Library, 300 S. River Avenue, Holland

This program will explore various sources of local government funds and review the city and county budget process. While we have taken advantage of special funds, government grants and our own local philanthropic generosity, the long-term responsibility for funding remains within the community. What are the near-term and long-term needs within the community, and how should they be supported? The program will conclude with a question and answer opportunity.
