La Crosse County to debate merits of sustainability proposal

From an article by Richard Mial in the La Crosse Tribune:

The joint city-county sustainability plan could be challenged at Thursday’s meeting of the La Crosse County Board.

The plan calls for greater energy efficiency, the use of cleaner energy and practices that don’t harm the environment.
It also calls for community education, the availability of living-wage jobs, access to affordable housing and health care, and opportunities for recreation and the arts.

The plan includes such recommendations as increased mass transit, a shared-car program similar to one being offered in Madison and efforts to encourage more city employees to live in La Crosse and more city and county employees to live closer to where they work.
