Monrovia High's Front Lawn May Become Even Greener

At its next meeting (agenda: https://is.gd/LvXZS5) the Monrovia Board of Education will consider applying for a Green Infrastructure Program grant, authorized by Proposition 68, to make the Monrovia High School front lawn "green."

If you thought the front lawn was already pretty green, I don't think you're on the right page. I don't think it's talking about the color, but rather projects that:
  • Reduce greenhouse gasses.
  • Improve the "sustainability and function" of hardscapes and landscapes.
  • Decrease air and water pollution.
  • Reduce use of natural resources and energy.
  • Increase the reliability of water supplies, and
  • "Increase adaptability to climate change."
The minimum award is $50,000, and if the district doesn't get the grant, the cost to restore the lawn will be approximately $27,000.

  1. Good it's about time, that was rediculous having all the church cars parking on it, I complained over a year ago, and the district told me they set it up for cars to park in it, guess the EPA thought other.
