One of the plan's goals is to eliminate litter throughout the city. How about phasing out plastic grocery bags as a start? That's not mentioned, but some other communities are doing that. Reducing water use is another goal - a good one for a city occasionally gripped by drought. How about pricing water to encourage conservation and recycling? Improving transit is an aim, too. One suggestion I've heard many times before - how about giving light rail trains priority at traffic lights? That would make transit faster than driving and probably boost ridership. Elected officials routinely reject that, saying it would worsen vehicular congestion. But wouldn't that make transit even more appealing?
