Environmental impact is one factor that contributes to public health issues, especially in urban areas, where there are large concentrations of people. Chicago, a large metropolitan area, has its own set of public health concerns that goes beyond its city limits and even crosses state lines.


Identify a specific public health concern as it relates to energy and urban sustainability in the Chicago area and suggest an informed, sustainable solution 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/energy bottlenecks?
