Bright & Early: Need More Trees Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Remember that new law granting free downtown parking to hybrid owners who shell out a mere $10 for a parking sticker? Metro Councilman Charlie Tygard, who has criticized the program for being too elitist, is hoping to extend the opportunity to all Davidson County car owners–if we are willing to pay for the carbon offset for the particular vehicles we drive. The money would go into a carbon offset fund that would pay for carbon-eating trees and wetlands mitigation and other fancy things to help the city get a little less gross.
