What is your top environmental concern and how would you address it?

Bobby Levinski

City Council, District 8

We need to adopt an aggressive 100-yr water plan (Water Forward) with an implementation timetable and goals/metrics that recognize the urgency of climate change and the need to become a more water-efficient, drought-resilient city. As an environmental attorney, I have been tracking the preparation of this plan and am eager to get moving on code amendments that will require developers to install green stormwater infrastructure and other on-site reuse options. This will help us avoid future water costs by using local water sources already available to us, instead of importing water at a premium.
