Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl is seeking volunteers to serve on a committee to review information submittals from companies interested in working with the City on a offshore wind farm in Lake Michigan.  In addition to reviewing these submittals, the committee will make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on potential next steps on the project.  Individuals need not have any specific experience in this area, just an interest in the subject. 

The committee will be selected in early February and is expected to meet several times prior to presenting a report to the Mayor and City Council in Spring, 2011. 

Letters of interest in serving on the committee should be sent to Mayor Tisdahl no later than Friday January 7, 2011 via email (wind@cityofevanston.org) or by mail to the Mayor at 2100 Ridge Avenue, Evanston, IL 60201. For further information about the committee or the wind farm project, please contact the City’s Sustainable Programs Coordinator Catherine Hurley at wind@cityofevanston.org or 847-448-8069.
