On Monday, Atlanta's mayor laid out a plan to reduce smog, increase park space, and improve food and water systems. The goal is to move Atlanta into the "top 10" of Sustainlane.com's ranking of Green Cities and to compete with cities like Seattle, Chicago, and New York which have more "cutting-edge" green policies.

Mandy Mahoney, the city's director of sustainability admits the plan is ambitious but highlighted the mayor's commitment to sustainability: "The mayor believes sustainability is critical to the growth of the city."
