GLIN==> This Week in the GL Town Hall - Big Box Run-off


This week in the Great Lakes Town Hall – How to Reduce Run-off from Big Box Stores – Join the discussion online!

This week, the Town Hall is pleased to welcome Brent Denzen’s story of the advocates in Wisconsin battling Big Box development.  Brent, an attorney with Midwest Environmental Advocates, tells the story of citizens in Monona and Hartford, who turned the challenges of stormwater management - including polluted runoff and flooding - into opportunities for environmental and community renewal. Don't miss your chance to read about Reducing Big Box Runoff every day this week - only in the Great Lakes Town Hall!*

In addition to guest speakers, the Great Lakes Town Hall focuses on a new featured Great Lakes issue each week, provided by co-moderators Jeffrey Potter, Dave Dempsey and Gary Wilson. This week, Jeff quotes the musical Urinetown and asks “Is it a privilege to pee?”  Don't miss this great opportunity to read and comment on our featured issue – Is it a privilege to pee? - and the views of our guest speaker, Brent Denzin, in the Great Lakes Town Hall (www.greatlakestownhall.org).
