The Baltimore Sun Is Asking For Your Vote On The 24hr Wal-Mart Proposed For Remington
Cities in Japan such as Tokyo and Kyoto have recently proposed policy plans to request 24-hour businesses to cut hours in a bid to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Earlier this year the Environment Agency, the UK’s equivalent to our Environmental Protection Agency, introduced rules forcing businesses to switch off lights and displays at night to meet new carbon reduction limits. Here in Baltimore, however, the latest wannabe green project, 25th Street Station, is inserting into a PUD (Planned Unit Development) a request for 24-hour operations at the site. The developers are requesting that the PUD be submitted Monday, April 19th to the Baltimore City Council. You be the judge for what is best for a sustainable Baltimore.
