Information about sustainability, the latest trends in green technology and progress reports on how well the District 9 community is doing with its Green Triangle Initiative will soon be just a few clicks away.
On Thursday, August 18th, the Green Triangle Initiative will launch the first phase of a new website that provides all that information and much more.
“This powerful new tool is designed to help residents, businesses, and government get access to green information and track our progress towards a more sustainable 9th District,” said Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh.
The Launch Party will be held at the Clifton Center, 2117 Payne Street from 6:00pm to 8:30pm.
The Green Triangle website will be a gateway into how the district is moving forward with the initiative begun almost two years ago. The effort has already generated a new business recycling program and expanded recycling options for residents, improvements to several environmental areas along Lexington Road and other streets, and several public projects adopting a “green” component.
It has recently been enhanced by the passage of Green Initiatives for developers and builders in Metro Louisville.
“Using this technology is another key component of the Green Triangle Initiative,” says Sallie DiLaura, a member of the Green Triangle Coordination Team. “The internet provides an effective tool to connect with our neighbors without using paper for newsletters or flyers.”
The website can be accessed by going to www.mygreentriangle.com
Green Triangle has partnered with Net Tango for development of the site.
“With each passing month more and more people are asking about the Green Triangle Initiative and we continue to see how easy it can be to move to a more sustainable world. In this case, it’s at our fingertips,” says Ward-Pugh.
For more information about the new Green Triangle website or information about the project itself, contact Councilwoman Ward-Pugh’s office at 574-1109.
