Title:
Investing in a Better Chicago: The Center for Neighborhood Technology’s 2011 Mayoral and City Council Agenda for Sustainable Development

Abstract:
CNT's policy platform for sustainable economic development focuses on four overall strategies: Ramp up energy conservation with efficiency retrofits of the city's buildings and other cost- and energy-saving measures; Improve transportation alternatives, encourage development around transit, and champion Chicago's rail assets so people and products can travel affordably; Strengthen benchmarks and incentives to encourage value-enhancing green infrastructure to manage stormwater and avoid costly flooding to private property; Reduce climate change emissions by pursuing the above strategies and implementing low-carbon, low-cost goals for municipal operations.
