What transportation-related changes do you think Newton should make to reduce carbon emissions?
The city is developing a Climate Action Plan, which will outline the steps the city can and should take to reduce carbon emissions. (The city is also developing a Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Action Plan, which will outline the risks the city faces from climate change and the steps required to mitigate the risk.) The plan will include recommended changes to our transportation network.
Good news and bad news: municipalities have the power to make changes that can have a meaningful impact on climate change, especially on the transportation front. What transportation changes do you think Newton should make? Where are the opportunities? How aggressive should we be? How much sacrifice should we expect Newtonians to make?
I’ll have a post with my top-ten list, shortly.
