Cool Blocks program is set to continue

Santa Clara County has extended its contract through 2023 with Cool Block, a program that connects neighbors to tackle climate change and disaster preparedness. The program originally launched in Mountain View in 2019 as part of a three-year pilot program.

Through Cool Block, those living on a given block join together and meet nine times over the course of five to seven months, with each meeting led by different neighbors. Each group works on issues including carbon footprint reduction, water conservation efforts and disaster preparedness. The groups also have access to city resources to help them implement their goals.
