New Urban Heat Island/Tree and Shade Subcommittee Established
The Environmental Quality and Sustainability Commission (EQSC), is proud to announce the creation of the Urban Heat Island/Tree and Shade Subcommittee. The purpose of the subcommittee is to evaluate, analyze and recommend policies to address the issues surrounding Urban Heat and to advance implementation of the Phoenix Tree and Shade Master Plan.
金游棋牌游戏"As our city continues to grow, so does the urban heat island and the need to provide heat relief," said Mayor Thelda Williams. "I look forward to the policy recommendations the subcommittee brings forward to mitigate the effects of the heat island and provide much needed shade throughout the city."
The recently established Urban Heat Island/Tree and Shade Subcommittee will include representation from a diversity of areas, including arboriculture, urban forestry, community health, commercial development and management, urban planning, environmental education, academia and residents.
"Finding long-term solutions to tackle our urban heat island and tree canopy are imperative for the future of Phoenix," said Colin Tetreault, Chairman, EQSC. "The Commission welcomes the opportunity to be the honest broker of ideas, solutions and policy recommendations that creates a 21st century city that is cooler, healthier, and more competitive."
EQSC Commissioners Sarah Porter and Dwayne Allen will head the new subcommittee as Chair and Vice Chair respectively.
