Officials claim the two primary objectives of the program are:

  • Decrease the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities caused by speeding and red light running.

Instead of a decrease, the total number of accidents at these locations increased six percent from 143 to 152, according to the city’s own data.

Will advocate for best use energy efficiency spending

sierra-club(Nashville) -The Tennessee Chapter of the Sierra Club has been included in a project involving thirteen Sierra Club Chapters across the country to help states and municipalities identify and successfully advocate for energy programs that best use their economic stimulus funds.  “Best use” is based on three attributes:  job creation, energy savings and cost savings.

The passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) legislation in February has opened the gates of billions of dollars of funding to flow from the Department of Energy (DoE) to states and municipalities through a block grant application process.  Grants will be approved for residential and commercial building energy audits, energy efficiency and conservation programs for buildings and facilities, implementation of transportation programs to conserve energy, energy efficient traffic signals and street lights and other projects.

Sierra Club is working to identify ways energy efficiency funds will be distributed and will advocate with decision makers to promote projects that are on-the-ground creating jobs and saving energy and money. «Read the rest of this article»
