A Community Vision For A Greener Chattanooga

Along Chattanooga’s Riverfront

This month, a green vision for Chattanooga’s future was unveiled for the next mayor and city council to consider.

The draft of the Integrated Community Sustainability Plan took two years for a group of environmental, business and community leaders to complete.

Among its goals for Chattanooga:  zero waste citywide by 2035, carbon neutral by 2050 - and equitable food production and distribution.

Michael Walton is executive director of green|spaces, the environmental nonprofit that coordinated the plan’s development.

Marvene Noel of the Orchard Knob Neighborhood Association helped draft one of the series of proposals.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, weekdays at 3 PM ET on WUTC.
