We don’t cover Ann Arbor all that often on Daily Detroit, but we can’t deny that a lot of interesting things come out of Tree Town. Case in point: The City Council recently approved a plan, years in the making, to make the entire city of 120,000 residents go carbon neutral by 2030. That makes Ann Arbor the first city in southeast Michigan to set such an ambitious goal.
The plan is called A2Zero, and it revolves around six core strategies, including moving the grid to 100% renewable energy, boosting energy efficiency and reducing the amount of miles driven by residents by 50%. Joining us to talk about it are Mayor Christopher Taylor and Missy Stults, the city’s sustainability and innovations manager who put the plan together. Check it out in the audio player below.
