Blueprint America

Congratulations to WTVP-TV who was selected to participate in the Blueprint America: Livability & Sustainability Outreach initiative, one of just 10 television stations in the country to receive a $10,000 grant. The station will air a half-hour documentary this fall that will define sustainability, focusing on high-speed rail coming to Normal, a proposed hydroelectric project in Quincy, how city regulations can help control urban sprawl in Peoria, and a "green" high school in Cuba, Illinois. The project will also involve an outreach component on wtvp.org, and educational elements through the Sun Foundation and the Central Illinois Green Expo at Illinois Central College this fall.
