CNN Tech recently highlighted America’s “Most Innovative Cities,” in 2014, with urban designations based upon the following credentials: technology, infrastructure, job creation & sustainability. Curators cited Philadelphia at # 8, praising Mayor Nutter’s green initiatives, foremost. Nutter set out to revitalize Philly as the Greenest City in America by 2015. Despite likely contention for this designation, Nutter’s lofty goal led formidable strides in the areas of air quality, waste diversion, farmer’s markets, stormwater pollution, sewer overflow reduction & street design improvements. Further, Philadelphia’s land bank will launch next year – set to acquire, maintian & sell  “40,000 vacant and derelict lots,” to develop affordable housing options, community spaces & local businesses.
