Environmental impact contributes greatly to public health issues, especially in the urban environment (where there are large concentrations of people and emissions). Chicago being a large metropolitan area that goes beyond the city limits and crosses state lines, concerns over public health are of great concern.
Identify a specific public health concern in the Chicago area and suggest an informed, sustainable plan to alleviate/mitigate the problem.
Think about the following questions and address at least two of them: 1) What would be the best course of action and who would be affected? 2) Why would this plan be beneficial and how would it relate to urban sustainability? 3) How should a city government prioritize in order to address health-related and environmental bottlenecks?
