CALABASAS SISTER CITIES

    

Sister City Visit - March 2010

On March 1, 2010, the City of Calabasas welcomed a delegation from Anqing, China.  Anqing has been a sister city to Calabasas for almost ten years and the partnership between the two cities has been enriched over the years through reciprocal visits of students, residents and government officials in both Anqing and Calabasas. 

During their visit, the representatives from Anqing were especially interested in California water issues and spoke with officials and city staff members about water usage and green initiatives.  The group toured the new Calabasas Civic Center which opened since their last visit in 2007 and also visited Headwaters Corner in Calabasas and Viewpoint School.

Mayor Jonathon Wolfson and Councilmember Dennis Washburn presented the Anqing group with a “Key to the City” before leading the visitors on a tour of the Calabasas Library and City Hall facilities.  The representatives from Anqing were able to learn about the environmentally-friendly design and construction of the Gold LEED facility. 

The delegation from Anqing presented Mayor Wolfson and Councilmember Washburn with a decorative scroll with a Chinese inscription about water which reads “How can it be so clear and cool? For water comes fresh from its source.”  The quote is from a book written by poet, statesman, philosopher, and neo-Confucian Zhu-Li during the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127 C.E.).

The Anqing delegation visited other parts of the United States and Canada during their visit.
