    Changing lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! What's next for you?

    I had already converted a lot of bulbs to LED, so it was a challenge to find two more, but I did!

    I listened to the "Connections" program from March 9 about the Penfield Community Choice Aggregation project.  I also checked out their website.  I am already on their mailing list.  I sent the organizers an email asking for what the lastest status of the project is, since the Town Board hearing on March 4.

    Buildings and Cities Go for a Daily Walk
    What have you noticed on your daily walks? What have you enjoyed? What infrastructure changes could make your walks more enjoyable or possible?

    I used a relatively new portion of sidewalk in my town and it made a huge difference in safety.  I also used a pedestrian crossing that is even newer.  I was grateful for both of these improvements my town has made in the last few years.  I also used a pedestrian crossing at a major intersection that has always been there, and I am grateful for that also.
