The Mayor’s Environmental Initiatives

September 8, 2011 at 1:22 pm 1 comment

 On Wednesday, September 14, Rob Parsons will discuss Mayor Arakawa’s current environmental projects and initiatives, including the Mayor’s recent Charter Commission proposal to expand the County’s focus on sustainability. Topics will include an axis deer management plan, Hawaiian monk seal recovery efforts, win-win solutions for community and local agriculture, and renewable energy updates.

Rob is the Maui County Executive Assistant for Environmental Concerns, a 33-year Maui resident, a well-known writer and environmental advocate who has also twice run for political office. From 2003 to 2007 Rob was the first-ever Maui County Environmental Coordinator. He has authored nearly 200 articles on topics such as renewable energy, biofuels, local food production, water resources, conservation, planning issues, and politics—many of them in his Maui Time Weekly’s “Rob Report.” Parsons also served as Hawaii consultant to Food & Water Watch, doing education and outreach on open ocean aquaculture issues.

Rob’s presentation will be shortly after noon on Wednesday the 14th at the Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea meeting at Mulligan’s On The Blue at the Blue Course in Wailea. All are welcome. Meeting cost is $10, with lunch $15.
