South Bend leaders meet for Green Town 2.0

South Bend is trying to become more environmentally friendly.  Tuesday morning city officials gathered for an event called Green Town 2.0. This event was an update from the first Green Town event that took place 6 months ago.

The initiative is an effort to make the city more sustainable for the future.  Highlights of the event included an update on the much talked about Smart Streets Initiative

Deputy Mayor Mark Neal says the project is ramping up.  "For this year clearly completing our first phase of smart streets, changing William and Lafayette to make them two way before the end of the year," says Neal.

The goal of the Smart Street Initiative is to make downtown more pedestrian and business friendly.  Neal says other cities that have done similar projects have seen an economic boost.
