When the first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970, environmental concerns focused primarily on addressing the pollution of air and water. Over the decades since then, the scope of environmental issues has expanded to include energy conservation, rising sea levels, extreme weather events, farmland preservation, and the multiple benefits to land, water, and air that come from reducing sprawl and providing alternative transportation options. In this issue of On Common Ground, we provide an overview of this wider range of environmental issues our communities — and property owners — will face in the future.
