Germantown taking steps to go "Green"

The Commercial Appeal had an article in today's edition that highlighted the steps City of Germantown is taking to go green via the use of alternative fueled vehicles, energy efficient lighting, solar powered gates, light sensors, and other energy saving measures at their city parks and other city properties. Mayor Sharon Goldsworthy stated she wanted her city to take a leading role in implementing more enviromentally friendly and energy efficient practices.

Drip irrigation and less water dependent plants for city property and medians are the next items being explored by the city according to the article. I don't know about anyone else but this idea in particular sounds so straight-forward and easy that it's hard to imagine we haven't already seen this done in West Tennessee.

Anyone have any information on what other plans Memphis or other communities may have in the works in regards to enacting "Green" measures similar in to these being enacted in Germantown?
