Packard is a busy bike route but it's also a hot spot for car/bike crashes. Ideally we should have a protected bike lane the length of Packard, but this stretch especially has plenty of room. We also need to treat the intersections with all the cross streets to slow down car turning speeds to protect both pedestrians and bicyclists.

proposed 1200 acre Washtenaw Solar Energy Center (WSEC) is projected to have a maximum capacity of 150 Megawatts of solar photovoltaic energy which is the equivalent of providing power for over 30,000 homes.

To somewhat echo the praise for the Veridian project, I'd love Washtenaw County (and/or the local governments within the county) to ban gas appliances in new construction. As we move towards renewable energy (and hopefully away from fossil fuels like natural gas), we don't want to keep using gas appliances anymore. And as it turns out, gas stoves leak methane even when they are not being used. They can also release nitrogen dioxide into one's home, which is bad for people's health, especially for those with asthma.

I'm very excited about the solar project being planned for the old Ann Arbor landfill, I think its a great way to make the site more useful and to provide clean energy.

The purple air monitors collect data and post on the web.https://www.purpleair.com/. I think the Ecology Center has been involved in placing these monitors along Detroit freeways. Individual can purchase and install monitors on their own, too.

Would love to see data on air quality and emissions for West Willow and other neighborhoods adjacent to current and historical industrial uses, as well as the landfills to the east along i-94?
