How Cool Can We Be? Net Zero Innovation Parks?
Now is the time to give your input on the new proposed Innovation Park concepts for our community.
Three new developments including two Innovation Park locations are being discussed right now with community and city leaders.
Many may already be familiar with the:
- Gateway project which is a Work/Live Innovation project near Downtown and the University. The Gateway developers continue to seek community input on their project through Sept 15th .
Two additional Innovation Park projects are also being proposed and are looking for community input.
- Mace Ranch Innovation Center –– began their outreach August 23rd and are planning additional outreach. This Innovation Park i s located on the West side of town, north of the Mace Blvd interchange with Interstate 80.
- Innovation Park (Northwest Quadrant near 113 and Covell) — Hines/SKK Developers is hosting an information session on the Proposed Davis Innovation Center (west site, near Sutter Davis Hospital) Thursday, August 28, 2014, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., Community Chambers at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd., Davis. The meeting will be hosted by Hines/SKK Developers et al.
All 3 projects have grown out of the hard work of the Innovation Park Task Force. Now developers are seeking the input of community members on these projects.
The Climate Action and Adaptation plan calls for significant reductions in our community’s greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and sets a goal of Net Zero by 2050. Does this mean that all new development should be net zero? Do we even know how to do that? How do we maintain a stable healthy economy for our community and meet these important goals upon which our long term survival depends? Lots of great minds are working on this problem; come join in the fun & challenge of imagining our community’s sustainable future!
Cool Davis is a coalition of citizens, the City of Davis, and community organizations working to empower our community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
