Yoon calls for green roofs. Only sort of literally.

City Councilor and mayoral candidate Sam Yoon has proposed new legislation that would give tax incentives for Boston property owners to build green roofs.
"Rooftop gardens are considered to help air quality, lower energy costs and cool down cities. However, theyâ€™re costly to install, ranging from $7 to $25 per square foot. Yoonâ€™s legislation would give building owners a reduction of $5 per square foot on their property taxes."
