ISSUE | DEVELOPMENT Greener cities are happier cities As I sit in a conference room on the 11th floor of my building, I can get a pretty good view of the surrounding city. I can't help but notice the predominance of gray infrastructure - sidewalk after sidewalk, an occasional tree thrown into the mix, more sidewalk, and pavement. There are several different ways a city can incorporate more green infrastructure, including green roofs, which serve as natural air conditioners due to evapotranspiration, bioswales, and rain gardens, which decrease storm-water runoff and limit pollutants entering nearby bodies of water.

The Cherry Hill school board on Tuesday night asked administrators to review the district's middle school lottery system after a group of parents criticized the process at a recent board meeting. Cherry Hill has three middle schools, one of which - Rosa International Middle School - admits students through a lottery. Students attend the other two schools, Beck and Carusi, based on where they live. The parents opposed to the lottery have children at Johnson Elementary, which sends students to both Beck and Carusi.
