Draft Water Efficiency Plan Now Available for Public Comment

Posted on Tuesday May 22, 2012

The City of Evanston is seeking public input on its draft Water Efficiency Plan document. In 2011, the City of Evanston was awarded a Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) technical assistance grant to assist the city in developing a water conservation and efficiency plan. The CMAP staff has been working closely with city staff and community stakeholders to develop a plan to increase water efficiency and improve water conservation efforts of Evanston’s residents and businesses.

Click here to visit the city’s website where the draft Water Efficiency Plan document is posted. Copies of the draft document can also be obtained from the City Clerk's office located on the First Floor of the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

The city is seeking public input on the document. Comments or questions should be submitted by Friday, June 7, 2012, via email to sustainability@cityofevanston or by mail to: City of Evanston, Attn.: Catherine Hurley, Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., Evanston, IL 60201.

Also, the city is looking to identify implementation partners for each recommendation of the plan. Please include any ideas for implementation partners as part of the public comment process.
