CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The Emanuel Administration is heralding a new clean energy plan, but some neighborhood activists say it falls short.

Emanuel helped introduce the so-called “Resilient Cities” plan, which aims to move Chicago to 100 percent clean and renewable energy by the year 2035. He said it’s fiscally sound, too.

But Kimberly Wasserman, director of the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, said the plan was formed without the input of polluted and challenged communities.

Emanuel stresses it’s a blueprint.
