This web site was launched in January 2001 with its home, Environmental Stewardship. The overwhelming response to the 10% for conservation campaign provided some wonderful content. Now that Mayor Paul Schell has launched Phase TWO of the campaign, we've organized conservation information into tips and resources and added an easier way for you to submit your own conservation stories. There's been a major increase in visitors to City Light's web site this year. We want it to work for you. Bob Royer, Communications & Public Affairs Director, July 9, 2000
