Let’s Make Nashville a Green City

Here’s great news from the Mayor’s Office. I need to learn how to get involved (not that I’m not already):

Mayor’s Green Ribbon Committee Presents Recommendations to Make Nashville ‘Greenest City in the Southeast’

After 10 months of work, the Green Ribbon Committee on Environmental Sustainability, appointed through Executive Order by Mayor Dean, released 16 goals and 71 recommendations at a presentation this week at the Shelby Bottoms Nature Center.

Each of the recommendations fell into five main categories: build a culture of sustainability, which emphasizes public outreach and education; conserve energy, reduce waste, green our buildings; expand transportation options; protect our natural resources; and reduce greenhouse gases.

Mayor Dean called the committee’s report “a comprehensive vision for making Nashville a more environmentally sustainable city.” He has set a goal to make Nashville the greenest city in the Southeast.

More information about the Green Ribbon Committee and the report are available online at www.nashville.gov/mayor/green_ribbon.
