Lawrence's Sustainability Advisory Board wants to hear ideas about how to make the community more environmentally friendly.
The board - appointed by the City Commission - is working to create long-term goals for the city. Areas the board currently is exploring include improving residential waste reduction and recycling; the promotion of energy conservation; the use of public transportation; and encouragement for sustainable businesses and development.
Board members are asking for suggestions from residents via e-mail by Sept. 9. Suggestions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
