Sustainability-seekers revise focus-group dates

       The Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG) has released a revised set of meeting times for the five committees involved in the development of regional sustainability goals.
       They have been scheduled on the following dates (all from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the PPACG office, 15 S. Seventh St, in the lower-level conference room):
  • Transportation Focus Group, Monday, Sept. 27.
  • Economic Development Focus Group, Monday. Oct. 4.
  • Health Focus Group (second meeting), Friday, Oct. 8.
  • Consensus Committee, Friday, Oct. 22.
           Other meetings will be scheduled through Nov. 5, as needed “to reconcile/ address Consensus Commit-tee comments,” according to Sarah White, a PPACG planner.
           After that, a “Sustainability Conference - Public 'Roll Out'” is scheduled Nov. 18-19 downtown at the Antler's Hilton Hotel, with a final Consensus Committee meeting Dec. 6, White said.
           The public is invited to participate in any of these meetings. Dates for them had initially been announced in August, but there have been several cancellations since then, White explained.
