Sierra Club: Building a Resilient Third Congressional District
August 14, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
From concrete jungles to sprawling suburbs to open pastures, the Third U.S. Congressional District is our country in microcosm. So what would a sustainable and resilient infrastructure look like for Wyandotte, Johnson, and Miami Counties? What are the problem areas with our infrastructure? How do we prioritize solving these problems? What are our successes? Is what we have built ultimately unsustainable, or are we one innovation away from fixing our problems? How can the representative we elect help ensure that where we live, work, and play will remain for future generations?
