NYC provides an example of local entrepreneurial initiative in making the City beautiful!

As most are aware I serve on the Board of Heartland Communities, Inc., which is the fiscal agent for and partner with Abigail Frost @ Save Maumee Grassroots Organization. Recently we have received a lot of attention in regards to the local controversy over the City's plan to amend to the green infrastructure around the area in order to satisfy a consent decree with the EPA. We are currently discussing alternatives to the previous best laid plans of the Administration. The City Council shot them down, rightfully so, I will add. In an effort to bring the City and her citizens to an awareness of what can be done both locally by the people and through entrepreneurial initiative, I offer this video narrated by Ethan Hawke courtesy of Andy @ Towleroad:

Have you been able to make any progress with council or city utilities on this?

I was just curious where the organization was in this process...

We are reading through appendix 7 which is the requirements and putting together a plan of action and a cost estimate. We have had some conversations with a couple of gov/ City officials.
