Though I live in Cypress, Texas now, when I lived in Alameda, California along the water, our community got concerned about our homes being so close to the San Francisco Bay. So a few years ago, I did a little research, used a spreadsheet to make some calculations, and created a webpage for our homeowner association website.
My former community has until 2031 or 2070 to remedy sea level rise depending on the tides and the weather. Hence, I am confident that the Crown Harbor owners are happy to see the latest announcement from the city of Alameda.
To all those who asked to receive updates on Climate Action in Alameda:
Please join City staff for the second Community Input Session of Alameda’s Climate Action and Resiliency Plan. At Community Input Session #1, City staff recorded hundreds of ideas from community members on how Alameda can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and become more resilient and sustainable. While last workshop was about brainstorming ideas, this workshop is about prioritizing and fleshing out the ideas that were most popular from the last round. Everyone is welcome to this Community Input Session, regardless of whether you attended the last one and how much prior experience you have.
After a brief introduction to the workshop, we will split into three breakout groups and discuss three main topics: greenhouse gas emissions, flooding and sea level rise, and other impacts of climate change. Each group will spend 45 minutes on each topic, then rotate to the next. Each breakout group session will begin with an update from City staff on the work that’s been done since the last Input Session and the potential strategies being considered. The remainder of the time will be spent gathering input on which strategies should be prioritized, how they can be improved, and any other considerations community members want to offer.
The workshop will be held at Alameda High School on January 26 from 9am-12pm, with sign-in beginning at 8:45am... More information is available on our website: https://alamedaca.gov/climateplan.

Autodesk has always been an automation company, and today more than ever that means helping people make more things, better things, with less; more and better in terms of increasing efficiency, performance, quality, and innovation; less in terms of time, resources, and negative impacts (e.g., social, environmental). It's high time for cities like Alameda to learn how to do more and better with less to stem the effects of climate change.
Governmental action is alive in the lab.
