The Green Triangle began formation in September of last year as a way to encourage the Ninth District to participate in sustainable activities. The idea for the name comes from the 9th District being somewhat shaped as a triangle. Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh invited neighborhood folks from Clifton, Clifton Heights, Butchertown, Irish Hill and Crescent Hill to come together and discuss their interest in green initiatives they would like to see implemented or duplicated in the Ninth District. The group met a few times in 2009 as a large group and in December, volunteers stepped up to form a “design team” to guide the process of creating a Green Triangle vision. The Design Team has been working to develop a plan to gather resident and business input about sustainability in the district, with the goal of developing a sustainability vision.
The Green Triangle Survey is designed to allow 9th District residents to communicate their perceptions, current efforts, and future desires for sustainability practices in their local area. Your opinions will help guide future sustainability efforts and initiatives near your home.
