Ashland pledges to become more green

ASHLAND, Ore. – The race to zero carbon emissions seems impossible, but the Ashland City Council said they’re up for the challenge.

In a 4 to 2 vote Tuesday night the Ashland City Council made a pledge to make the city more sustainable. The pledge didn’t come without controversy, a couple of councilors said this pledge could be an empty promise to Ashland citizens.

“I love it, I think it’s wonderful. But it’s just a nice list of something we might not be able to commit ourselves to,” said Councilor Gina DuQuenne.

The race to zero is a global campaign rallying businesses and cities to be more green lowering CO2 levels. By Ashland making this pledge they must select from a list of ways to help the environment.
