Cincinnati updates Green Plan

June 10, 2018 by  

Cincinnati recently adopted the 2018 Green Cincinnati Plan (GCP), which is an effort to make the city more resilient, equitable, and sustainable.

This is not a new effort, but an update to the original plan, making it the third time it has been modified. The Green Plan has contributed to Cincinnati’s reputation as a city that is leading the way in efforts to promote sustainability, which in turn leads both businesses and individuals to consider relocating here.

According to Cincinnati’s mayor, John Cranley, the plan tackles climate change head on, in addition to reinforcing the city’s commitment to a sustainable environment. He stated that in spite of efforts to take apart environmental regulations, Cincinnati plans to continue its fight against climate change, which he believes will show that local solutions are the first step to solving global problems.

The plan for 2018 lists 80 separate strategies that will enable the city to reduce its carbon emissions by 80% by the year 2050. It focuses on waste systems, transportation, food, and energy, and will benefit Cincinnati’s health and economy, preserve the environment, and make it possible to attract talented people to make their homes Cincinnati.

The plan was updated after the city held more than 30 meetings with the public, and considered over 1,400 recommendations.

Efforts like this have the potential to affect everyone, so officials might consider working with a flyer printing company on a mailer for residents.
