Don Plusquellic's Greenprint for Akron

The Village Green is endorsing Don Plusquellic for Mayor of Akron, having just read his Greenprint for Akron.

I was born in Akron, attended the University here, left for ten years, then returned to establish a career, buy a house and live a happy life in my hometown. The happy part would not be complete until my city began to take serious steps toward sustainability and lessening our collective carbon footprints. I am delighted to read this manifesto for a greener future here in my hometown.

With all due respect to my Finley supporting friends in Highland Square, I want a mayor who can make things happen. Plusquellic has done that many times in his public service career. I salute him for stepping up to the plate for green issues.

Recently, I read an article that listed the 15 greenest cities in the world, and my immediate thought was -- wow, why can't Akron be one of these cities? If we want to attract people, then this is the way to go. If you think so too, why not become part of this conversation? Let's send our environmental wish lists to the mayor and see what happens.

My first wish is that the building codes for this city be upgraded to include energy efficiency, sustainable materials and environmentally sound practices from plumbing to flooring to siding and so on.

The lovely cityscape banner and portrait of the mayor shown above was lifted from the city of Akron's web site. Since it is paid for by my taxes, then I figure I can use it free of charge!

Good luck Mayor Plusquellic! And go green Akron!

Great idea. Better yet - Ohio tends to be behind the curve. Let's make a "Green" progressive Ohio a high priority.
