That's great that the council is talking about it doing something like this at a goverment level. That;s what good leadership is about, progressive thinking. Way to go Tacoma.! Healthy decision like this is so important to the survival of our future all over th world.. Germany (greenroofs/solar) and Iceland (geopthermal energy) lead the way to a cleaner , safer future. San Fransisco realalizes that biodiversity within it's city is crucial. www.sustainable-city.org/Plan/Biodiver/intro.htm
These are some other ways, besides solar and wind power, we can start to make our cities healthier & productive while creating new jobs. Geothermal Energy, Greenroofs, Sustainable/Biodiverse/Walkable city planning & building, Passive Solar Design. Lets get going!
