Significant environmental issues can devastate a community.
Community leaders and committees play important roles in assessing and
mitigating the impacts. In this assignment, create a 10-to12-slide PowerPoint
presentation in which you will imagine yourself as a community leader in the
region in the City of Pleasanton, Atascosa County, State of Texas.
You have been tasked with assessing current and significant environmental
issues that impact your community at a local level. You may define the
“community” as a
region, county, or city for your analysis. The issues you
identify may include environmental concerns not currently significant but
may
become significant in the future. You will be developing a presentation to
share your concerns at a community town hall
meeting. Be sure to use research and data to support your analysis.
When designing your content slides, you must also include slide
notes (also called speaker notes). For each slide, your speaker notes should
contain a minimum of 100 words describing
and expanding on the content.
