Turtles, Sharks, Food, and Wine Oh My!
The Living Coast Discovery Center is only seven minutes from downtown, but many people aren't even aware of its existence. On August 3, this unique and unforgettable organization on San Diego Bay will host Chef Andrew Spurgin and a host of regional restaurants and breweries with a Farm to Bay feast not to be missed. While you are there, you can visit Franklin the bald eagle, see Raptor Row, get up close with sea turtles and leopard sharks, and enjoy the company of people who value San Diego Bay and our unique coast. See Caron Golden's recent foodie blog about the Discovery Center and Channel 8's Shawn Styles report that tells the whole story. Click here for tickets.
Senate Bill 64 to Benefit Clean Technology Innovations
Nettleton Strategies has recently been helping our strategic partners in Sacramento, Clean Tech Advocates, gain support for Senate Bill 64 by Majority Leader Ellen Corbett. Last year, the Legislature enacted and the Governor signed into law the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Investment Plan and Communities Revitalization Act to provide a framework for use of the greenhouse gas auction revenues. SB 64 is an important step, proposing a Clean Technology Investment Account within the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to ensure that a portion of future auction revenues is available to fund development and deployment of innovative technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Nexus Between Water, Energy and Emissions
Nettleton Strategies participated in a public forum on the nexus between water, energy and emissions presented by the Conservation Action Committee on July 8, 2013, at SDG&E's Energy Conservation Center. Presentations ranged from a discussion of how to optimize energy use to incentives for water and energy conservation. The Nettleton Strategies presentation provided an overview of how policy decisions in water affect energy and emissions and vice versa. An example focused on the priority rights to Upper Colorado River Basin water held by interests that plan to develop oil shale in the Colorado, Utah and Wyoming high country.

The organization works with partners in Baja and promotes bi-national economic development with the cities of Mexicali, Tijuana, Tecate, Rosarito, and Ensenada. Among its many programs, the organization is undertaking a project to shape a vision for the South County region.

San Marcos General Plan Is Top Esri Conference Map
Each year 15,000 people gather at the San Diego Convention for a week at the Esri conference. Each year the sail area of the Convention Center is filled with maps competing to be the best in their category. This year, the international competition resulted in the City of San Marcos taking first place for the map of its general plan. The map was created by the City's Mettja Kuna. Mettja's map took First Place in the “Map Series or Atlas – In-House Copy” category and was also the “Best Overall.” Esri is the world leader in mapping software and "inspires and enables people to positively impact the future through a deeper, geographic understanding of the changing world around them."
