If you REALLY want to know...

What's going on in the City of Stars, then you might want to think about attending two upcoming [free] events in town. The first one takes place tonight, at the Mission Blue Center. Starting at 7:30 p.m., Charles Jencks, a former professor at the UCLA School of Architecture and now a leading architechtural critic and writer, will be taking all those in attendence on an exploration of the iconic buildings of our time. As part of the "University of Brisbane at Mission Blue" Baylands Speaker Series, tonight's event is meant to provide the community with a "university" look at the Baylands project, and one we hope you'll find fascinating.

The second if-you-really-want-to-know event takes place on Monday night at the Community Center. The agenda for the night's Council Meeting includes a variety of important issues for the City, among them an update on the Northeast Ridge involving the current eucalyptus tree removal and thinning project being carried out by Brookfield Homes, and the adoption of a Green Building Ordinance through the amendment to the Conservation Element of the City's General Plan.

If you would like e-mailed agendas for upcoming City Council meetings, please let City Clerk Sheri Schroeder know by sending her an e-mail at requesting to be added to the distribution list.
