Frog blog

Maybe it was an omen.

A gorgeous little green frog, the symbol of environmental health, was on my windshield Tuesday when I returned to my car after covering a Lakewood Ranch  supervisors meeting.

An omen because much of the meeting was about environmental health at the Ranch, a certified green community. 

Here's a sample of our story from today's meeting:

Green-sounding street names like Honeysuckle Trail, Atrium Drive and Natures Way co-exist at Lakewood Ranch with street names that almost have a sci-fi flavor: Communications Parkway, Solutions Lane, Technology Terrace and Internet Place.

Now, Lakewood Ranch seems poised to merge its green side with cutting edge technology in a new way.
Charging stations for a new generation of electric and hybrid cars are planned for the visitor information center on University Parkway, and at Main Street.

Tuesday, supervisors from the Ranch’s Inter-District Authority, which is responsible for Town Hall operations, heard a request from  Lakewood Ranch resident Ken Stokes to add a third station at Town Hall.
