Environmental Commission Objectives/areas of focus for 2019

For 2019, the Environmental Commission has selected two primary objectives:
 
  • Reduce single-use plastics by, for example, evaluating pilot for bag ban and replicating the University of Kentucky's “Pass On Plastics” in local businesses.
  • Focus on energy and transportation to work on developing a sustainability master plan and focusing on Lexington’s contribution to carbon emissions and climate change, and implement the Empower Lexington Plan.
