Way to Go, Bill Nierstedt!
Bill is the director of the Planning Division and has very enlightened views on sustainability and transit-oriented development, not to mention his advocacy of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards.
There was an Oct. 15 print version, but if you missed it, you can read it online here. Just be aware that there are tons of ads along the way.
One must respect a municipal official who not only advocates environmental principles, but actually lives them out in daily life.
