MPC's Blue Island, Blue Water project will be recognized at this event

On Wednesday, Nov. 7, the U.S. Green Building Council will recognize the hard work of schools across Illinois that worked to make their campuses more sustainable during the 2012 Green Apple Day of Service.  The event will take place from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Paul Revere Primary School in Blue Island, Ill.

The major projects undertaken at Paul Revere Primary and Intermediate Schools last month, including installing native plant gardens and rain barrels, were sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council and coordinated with help from the City of Blue Island, the Metropolitan Planning Council, the Lakota Group, and the Ill. Dept. of Natural Resources.  More than 100 students, parents, teachers and community members volunteered their time and energy to make the project a success.

The gardens and infrastructure improvements at Blue Island schools are one part of an on-going effort to address flooding problems on the City's northeast side through better stormwater management techniques and community involvement.
