Kitchener recognizes Clean Air Day with 5 best bets

KITCHENER – Each year, the City of Kitchener's local environmental advisory committee recommends five actions from the city’s 2010 report on air quality for investigation by staff into their feasibility and implementation.

This year’s five best bets are:

1. Continue to preserve and acquire parklands and natural lands in existing developments.

2. Provide creative measures to curb idling at traffic lights by adjusting the timing of traffic lights during non-peak hours.

3. Establish a tree planting and partnership program by offering incentives to residents, community organizations, schools, business improvement areas and volunteers to expand resources for the planting, maintenance and care of trees.

4. Continue to support by way of education, signage, advertising support, and website updates private and/or community vegetable gardens within the city.

5. Promote ecological diversity (primarily native species) in city parks, private, commercial and industrial properties (e.g. butterfly habitat, wildflower sections, plants that attract and/or sustain pollinators and removal of invasive species).

Clean Air Day is part of national Environment Week, raising awareness and encouraging action on clean air and climate change issues. Canadians can show their commitment by participating in activities that contribute to cleaner air, healthier communities and a better quality of life for all.
