Nifty: Street Projects That Also Stop Pollution

New, 9 comments

Even though there are a number of street improvements underway in Santa Monica (streetscaping and landscaping meant to "slow traffic"), none of these are green projects, blogs Mark Gold, the president of Heal the Bay. In fact, Santa Monica and Los Angeles don't have much of a record in terms of green street projects. "Despite all of the discussion and activity, no city in Los Angeles County has passed a green streets ordinance with requirements for all street projects. The city of Ventura is furthest along regionally, with its city council recently passing a resolution asking staff to move in that direction." Pictured: Portland, Oregon, one of the leaders in green street projects. Always with the Portland. [Spouting Off]
