for the MenloSpark project  
This proposal would provide seed funding to MenloSpark, a new community project to explore opportunities to promote long-term economic vitality, equality, and quality of life in Menlo Park, while addressing the threat of climate change. The goal is for the city of Menlo Park to become climate neutral by 2025 and serve as a model for other U.S. cities of similar size. The four main strategies to achieve this include replacing carbon-emitting energy sources with renewable power generation; decreasing emissions through clean transportation and fewer vehicle miles traveled; efficient buildings, reaching zero net energy; and reduction of emissions as a result of responsible waste practices.
