EPA Town Hall Meeting About Effective Land Use
WASHINGTON " The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is holding an Internet-based town hall meeting on March 30, 2010, from 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. EST. Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator for EPA`s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, and other EPA experts will answer citizen questions about effective land use.
Effective and efficient land use saves commuting time, money, resources, and energy. Land use is also a major factor affecting the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) that we produce. A recent EPA document found that 16-20 percent of U.S. GHG emissions are associated with land management policies.
EPA wants to know what the public thinks about EPA`s land use policies. What role does the public see EPA playing in land reuse? How can land cleanup contribute to effective reuse?
