The city of San Diego is convening a series of public meetings in each council district to allow the public to ask questions and hear about the planned lawn-watering days and water restrictions that go into effect June 1.

All meetings start at 6 p.m. The first was last night at the La Jolla library.

Others follow: Tonight in the War Memorial Building in Balboa Park; Wednesday in the Valencia Park/Malcolm X Branch Library; Thursday in the Serra Mesa-Kearny Mesa Branch Library; Monday at Lewis Middle School; May 20 at the Otay Mesa-Nestor Branch Library; May 26 at the Pacific Beach/Taylor Branch Library; and May 27 at the Carmel Mountain Ranch Branch Library.

The city is also holding two meetings to get public input on the $12.5 million in energy efficiency money it’ll receive from the federal stimulus package. Those meetings also start at 6 p.m. They run tonight at the La Jolla library and Wednesday, May 20 in the silver room at the Civic Center Concourse.

Sanders proposes to spend $5 million of that to install 3 megawatts of solar panels in Balboa Park. The National City-based Environmental Health Coalition has urged the city to study the best ways to invest the stimulus money in order to maximize the energy savings and number of local jobs created.
