14. For years the City’s plan to reduce GHG emissions from transportation has depended on efforts to move people out of single-occupancy vehicles into shared vehicles and buses, bicycles, and foot travel. It is increasingly being predicted that surface transportation will soon be dominated by self-driving, electric-powered vehicles owned by large organizations and rented to users on a ride-by-ride basis. Do you think this prediction will be fulfilled in the next 20 years? If yes, how should the City prepare for, and respond to this new transportation reality?
I enjoy living in a Bee Safe neighborhood. This program is a great example of developing a culture of awareness and action at a grass roots level. I would encourage OSMP to evaluate leasing (for free or for very small amounts) portions of appropriate eastern properties to bee keepers.
The City Forrester can play a stronger role in encouraging people to either let their ash trees go and replace them or use a non-neonicotinoid treatment for their trees.
