Submitted by resident group, Panorama Green Team – April 2020
Many of us are asking: “What can I – and my community – do as a positive response to climate change?”
The Green Team is considering how Panorama residents might shrink our carbon footprint while meeting our transportation needs. The goal is ambitious: we want Panorama to be seen as a leader in meeting its transportation needs in a sustainable manner. The Green Team is forming a work group to consider this and bring a plan to our community. We invite interested persons to join us.
What might such a plan include? We believe education is the key. Could we help our neighbors make smart choices to reduce fossil fuel use? This could include shifting to hybrid or electric vehicles, as well as improved access to alternate transportation. What are the questions we need answered to make wise choices?
We hope to collaborate with Panorama management in this effort. Could new or remodeled residences include outlets to recharge electric vehicles? Is there a cost-efficient strategy to begin providing vehicle recharge stations at our apartment buildings? In the longer term, could there be opportunities for Panorama to convert its vehicle fleet to electric power?
We know that transportation is a highly significant source of carbon dioxide emissions that accelerate climate change. We want to do our part to reduce our impact – and to educate the larger community if we can lead by example. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
