Some gnood ews came out of a "Green Racine" business meeting at Gateway Technical College today. Let's recap a few stories:
1. Mick Burke at the JT is reporting a Chinese company is looking to build an "eco-business park" in Mount Pleasant.
2. Mayor John Dickert announced he was close to luring a company that uses recycled tires to make shingles, according to Burke. The unnamed company would bring 88 jobs to Racine.
3. Burke and WRJN's Janet Hoff also reported Tuesday about the meeting itself, which was designed to inspire and encourage local companies to act more "green." Here's the JT story, along with a sidebar on five steps toward sustainability. And WRJN's story.
New jobs and a cleaner environment ... not bad!
