Some green advice for Villaraigosa

markgoldsquare.jpgMark Gold, the president of Heal the Bay, posted a blog item today with his three biggest green initiatives that Mayor Villaraigosa should undertake. Think sustainability, water and low-impact development.

Imagine a trash-free L.A. River, Ballona Creek and Machado Lake. Imagine beaches that are safe for swimming year round. Imagine rivers and lakes that aren’t toxic to aquatic life.

Details at Gold's blog, Spouting Off.
