JLF complaining already

One thing I forgot to mention about Greensboro signing on to Cool Cities were the great comments by Council member Florence Gatten. Greensboro is aiming to do its inventory and set more specific year by year reduction goals by next May.

Gatten pointed out that is perfect timing- right as the budget is being prepared so that the city can put its money where its mouth is in terms of reaching its goals.

That didn't sit very well with our buddies over at the John Locke Foundation.

'SamH' of JLF complains that tonight's action is:

Concrete justification to spend more on public transportation, open space, bicycle paths, smart growth initiatives, LEED-certified buildings, you name it, as if the city isn’t spending enough.

We're so sorry!
