A question for Mayor Sam Adams. Sam, during your campaign and early in your term as mayor you talked about, and put a great deal of energy into your "grey to green" initiative and committed $50 million over five years to invest in alternative, "green infrastructure" projects that would improve water quality, fish and wildlife habitat and better integrate the built and natural environmets in Portland.
More recently we've hear little or nothing about this initiative during your City Club state of the city address and other public forums. While I applaud your focus on green building, energy issues and improving bicycling opportunities in the city, the fact is without a concerted effort to better protect, restore and manage the city's green infrastructure Portland will not achieve the level of sustainability you indicate is one of your highest priorities.
Has your grey to green and other natural resource initiaties fallen in priority for you and the city?
