The Sierra Club will present Sustainability in Shelby County: The Next Chapter tonight.

The event, which will be held at Trinity United Methodist at Galloway and Evergreen, begins with refreshments at networking at 6:30 p.m., followed by a panel discussion at 7 p.m.

The forum will discuss the results of Sustainable Shelby, as well as "the promise of what implementation of these proposals means for Memphis and Shelby County."

Sustainable Shelby, an initiative led by Shelby County mayor A C Wharton, has come up with lots of good recommendations for future growth in the area. I've been really happy to see that the majority of people polled in Shelby County want to live in neighborhoods that are healthier, greener, and more walkable.

If we don't implement the report's ideas, however, it means nothing, so the coming months are going to be the test.

It was a good meeting. The panel did great job and were excited about their what they were doing. That's always a big plug for moving things forward.
