Friday, May 03, 2013 3:15 PM
Drake University law students are continuing a successful tradition of working with Greater Des Moines organizations to enhance sustainability in the community. Students in professor Jonathan Rosenbloom's Sustainability and the Law class have identified some key areas of concern and drafted changes to city code to address those concerns. Topics for this year's class include "Urban Infill and Sustainable Development," "Farmers Market Incentive Program," "Water in the Environment: Residential Water Quality" and "Revitalizing Walnut Street." Students sought input from experts within the Des Moines community and did a thorough review of best practices around the country, and in some instances, best practices around the world.
