The other day I dropped by the Salesian Boys & Girls Club on Byron Street in Eastie to see my sister-in-law Renee Landry who is on the Club's staff. She was glad to see me and showed me around the place. It reminded me of my boyhood days back in Roxbury when I used to go over to the Emmanuel House where the Graym00r Nuns had a great aftersch0ol pro- gram. It kept all of us out of trouble which is something the Salesian Club does as well. For more information, you can stop by, call 617-567-6626 or click on to salesianclub.com.

Menino, Last month, people all over the world celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day. Here in Boston, we continue to move our city forward with innovative new green projects and initiatives. Whether it is the efforts of a local busi- ness owner, our neighborhood residents, or the leadership of our government, collectively our efforts in sustainability are the reason Boston is recognized as one of the greenest cities in the nation. Boston's business and residential com- munities are doing an outstanding job of implementing practices to make Bos- ton a greener, more sustainable, and livable city. I presented the fourth an- nual Mayor's Green Awards last week to four residences and fourteen busi- nesses recognizing their commitment to sustainability. From creating a green roof/garden to implementing energy management, water conservation and other sustainable practices, their com- mitment to our community and the en- vironment and is an outstanding ex- ample of the leadership necessary to advance Boston's ambitious sustain- ability goals and continue to grow our green economy. Boston's Climate Action Leadership Committee also presented last month, after a year-long public process, a set of wide-ranging recommendations aimed at significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for the risks of climate change in Boston. The report calls for reducing Boston's green- Mayor, City of Boston house gas emissions by 25% by 2020 and highlights how climate action will bring significant economic benefits to Boston. I am excited about this plan and com- mitted to moving the ambitious agenda forward so that Boston may realize the full benefits of a low carbon city and en- sure that our city remains a vibrant one for future generations. Other exciting initiatives include a proposal to develop a 1.65 megawatt wind turbine on Moon Island, a property owned by Boston but located within the munici- pal boundary of Quincy. The City of Bos- ton is working with Quincy officials to m0vc the project forward, which would provide enough electricity to power 807 homes in Boston and Quincy. We have also received $63 million in energy efficiency improvements for Boston Housing Authority facilities across the city. The improvements are expected save the BHA more than $56 million in energy costs over the next 20-years, result in approximately 600 jobs, and reduce carbon dioxide emis- sions by 13,000 tons annually. The commitment of Boston's residents and businesses to our local community and environment is what makes our city a beautiful place to live, and that com- mitment will help ensure Boston's sus- tainability for the future. On April 23rd and 24th approximately 4,800 volunteers came out to 168 sites across the city for (Continued on Page 14) THE POST-GAZETtE SATELLITE OFFICE IS NOW OPEN AT 35 BENNINGTON STREET, EAST BOSTON This office is open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 10:00 AM to 3.'00 PM and Thursdays from 11.'00 AM to 2.'00 PM, for the convenience of our East Boston and North Shore clients and contributors Call 617-227-8929 for more information
