    Just read "5 Sustainable Projects You Wish Were in Your City." How has your city incorporated sustainability into its infrastructure projects?

    Dear Denise Nelson, 
    Thank you for submitting this post.Seismic improvement can be one of the structural processes for the construction and development of sustainable cities. Because this process avoids many of the crises that affect environmental problems.

    For Example :
    Following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, more than 200,000 people were killed, about as many were injured and more than 1.5 Million people were displaced. Even 6 years later, there are about 60,000 people still homeless.This means increasing fuel and energy consumption, disrupting the environmental cycle, disrupting the urban process.

    I will present a sustainable city process image to complete your discussion.
