Care for God's Creation
It's up to us to serve as responsible stewards and preserve Earth's God-given ecological inheritance out of respect for the past, present, and future generations.
The well-being of our community is interlinked to the health of our environment. This is especially true for those of us who live closest to our green spaces. Our trails and parks are precious gems, and each and every one of us should take responsibility to create a future that's sustainable, vibrant, and full of love for our city.
It's time to challenge the status quo and reevaluate our approach to waste management.
Landfills, while once a convenient solution, are no longer viable for a sustainable future.
Landfills pose significant challenges to our environment. They release harmful greenhouse gases, contribute to air and water pollution, and deplete precious natural resources. It's time to embrace innovative solutions that move us away from this outdated and environmentally destructive practice.
As councilwoman Dania will promote sustainable practices such as recycling, composting, and waste reduction to minimize the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
Dania will support the exploration of innovative solutions such as waste-to-energy technologies and biotreatment facilities that will revolutionize waste management, reduce our carbon footprint, and lessen our reliance on landfills.
From promoting cycling and walking infrastructure to developing paratransit transportation options, I am dedicated to supporting sustainable alternatives to move around the city.
As councilwoman, Dania will support the development of alternative transportation options to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
This includes expanding bike lanes and pedestrian-friendly infrastructure. Dania believes that walkability is a cornerstone of a livable city, fostering healthier lifestyles, stronger social connections, and a more sustainable future.
By investing in well-maintained sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian-friendly intersections, we ensure the safety and convenience of our residents and visitors. Let's create a seamless network of walkable paths that connect neighborhoods, parks, businesses, and hotspots, inviting everyone to explore and enjoy our beautiful city on foot or bike.
Bioswales are an innovative stormwater management solution that combines beauty and functionality to offer an eco-friendly approach to handling stormwater runoff.
Covington has a handful of bioswales, most of them are located at private developments. As councilwoman, Dania will support incentives that rewards homeowners, businesses, and local organizations to embrace bioswales as part of their sustainable landscaping practices.
By incorporating these features into our properties, we can collectively make a significant impact on stormwater management and embrace the power of nature and its ability to harmonize urban development with ecological balance.
Together, we can create a city that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also environmentally responsible.
