August saw the advancement of the Climate Action Plan to the initial review phase as feedback began to be incorporated into the document. In anticipation of upcoming elections and the conclusion of the plan, a meeting was set up with city councilman Bill Peduto's office to guide the document towards adoption by the council. Another PCI newsletter was sent out, with slightly declining open and click rates. I facilitated a HECC quarterly meeting where we discussed the potential for a dedicated Green Cities Fellow to work solely with HECC next year, and I have drafted an MoU between the schools as well as a job description for the position. We also settled on a final date for the HECC tree planting service project, October 29. I also organized and facilitated the August PCI Partners meeting where I brought in the Chief Sustainability Officer of Siemens Corp. to discuss the North American Green Cities Index and get feedback on how to improve future showings as well as provide Siemens feedback on what we thought were areas for improvement in the study. The Moving Planet Day event in Market Square has been officially given the moniker "Transportation Exploration", and will include Bike Pittsburgh, the Port Authority, ZipCar, Southwest Pennsylvania Commission, and PCI. Food and drinks have been succesfully solicited for participants, and we are working on a list of speakers for the event currently.
