Although there’s still snow on the ground, the City is trying to make Fort St. John a little greener.
City staff is organizing two ‘Be the Change Events’, on Thursday and Friday.
City Manager Dianne Hunter and Mayor Bruce Lantz discussed the events on Moose FM’s Issues and Answers on Wednesday morning.
Hunter says both the sessions and Fort St. John’s newly created Community Energy Manager position, stem from the Community Energy Plan.

Thursday’s event will be the opportunity for the City to outline the Community Energy Plan to the public.
The evening will feature a musical performance by a choir of more than 100 local school children. Keynote speaker Tzeporah Berman, Founder of PowerUp Canada, will also headline the event.
Admission is free, and the show starts at 7:00 p.m at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
Mayor Lantz says it’s important that Fort St. John take a stance on environmental change.
