Dear Community Friends and Partners:
The first print edition of the Green Pueblo Map showcasing our community’s favorite “green” places and spaces will be available later this year. If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to “make your mark” on the map by nominating your favorite sustainable sites at www.greenpueblomap.org . Please also encourage your friends and colleagues to participate.
Nominations are being accepted in more than 30 categories, including community gardens, solar sites, recycling centers, re-use shops, public parks, scenic vistas, rainwater harvesting locations, and historical sites. It takes only a minute to nominate a site and you do not have to provide any personal information other than a zip code. Once a site is nominated, it will typically appear on the website within a month. A selection of sites will also appear on a printed version of the map. If you want your site(s) to be considered for the printed map, please submit your nomination(s) by April 1, 2010.
The Green Pueblo Map is a free, community-based mapping effort. The on-line map is constantly evolving and reflects the community we are all creating together. Residents are encouraged to visit www.greenpueblomap.org at anytime to help identify and explore the features that promote sustainable living and which makes our region such a special place to live.
Pima County, the City of Tucson, and The Inner Connection are organizing the Green Pueblo mapping effort. However, the project is part of a much broader, international green mapping initiative that began in New York City in 1995, and has since spread to 55 countries.
