It’s hard to believe it’s May already. With so much progress on the climate and environmental fronts to celebrate, Earth Month flew by. Here are some of the highlights of the City’s work this past April.
Madison reaffirmed its commitment to support pollinator health, authorizing the city of Madison to take the Mayors’ Monarch Pledge. Pollinators are essential for the resilience of our food systems, the health of our environment and of course add immensely to our local natural beauty.
Last Friday I was honored to take part in the 2022 MadiSUN launch event at the Ace Apartments on the City’s east side. This is the seventh year of MadiSUN – the City’s solar program for homes, businesses, affordable housing providers and nonprofits.
As we look forward to Earth Day on April 22nd, we have a lot of environmental successes to celebrate—far more than we could celebrate in a day, or even a week. So this year, the City is celebrating a full Earth Month.
On February 23, the State Natural Resources Board will consider State standards for PFAS in drinking water and surface water. I again wrote a letter stating my support for these standards with input from the Madison Water Utility, which you can read below.
