Love that this robust idea made it on to the platform alrie Middlebrook My name is Jeremie and I'm working with OpenIDEO to help moderate this challenge. If you haven't connected already I know that Councilwoman Nancy Smith is a champion of this kind of work.
Don't forget to go through other submissions to gain inspiration, comment and provide evaluations. These activities are important at this stage of the process. We appreciate you being involved!
Hey Shawn F My name is Jeremie from the OpenIDEO team here to help refine your idea. Please consider me as a resource as we prepare to wrap up the challenge in the next few days.
Your suggestion to 'Prohibit all private and commercial properties from growing grass lawns. Only allow arid low-water plants or artificial manufactured grass' reminded me of this proposal Dollars for Natives that I thought your might enjoy reviewing. The Sustainable Landscaping Program submission is also aligned with your work and might be interesting to reach out to/ gain inspiration from. Don't hesitate to let me know if you need any help making new connections.
I'm curious about the imperative to 'reduce water usage by over twenty-five percent.' How did you coin this metric? Excited to learn more about how we can contribute to rev-up water conservation efforts here in Sunnyvale.
Thanks for this submission sunshine.pris Great to have some best-practices from across the globe make their way on this challenge. Your Garbage Guardians concept reminded me of another submission Green Warriors in Training that I thought would be interesting for your to review. Feel free to explore the platform, comment on your peers work, and gain knowledge/ inspiration!
