At our first meeting of what we are currently calling "Sustainable Macomb," we discussed what first small steps we would like to take.  We decided that promoting sustainability at our local university could serve as an example to the rest of the community.  We will be recommending that the new performing arts center at WIU (Western Illinois University) be built to LEED (Leadership in Environmental Engineering and Design) or similar specifications.  In addition to being environmentally friendly, this could potentially save the university and the state money and increase campus prestige by showing more visionary leadership.
