Common Sense, Progress for Roanoke County is holding a meeting on Feb. 28 to provide an overview of Roanoke County’s program to reduce energy consumption. Here are more details from Common Sense:
You are invited to attend the February meeting of Common Sense Progress for Roanoke County on Monday, February 28, 2011 at the Roanoke County Headquarters/419 Library, 3131 Electric Road, Roanoke, from 7:00 PM – 8:45 p.m.
On February 24, 2009, the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution to authorize the establishment of a citizen’s committee tasked to identify ways to reduce emissions and energy use in Roanoke County by developing strategies for improved energy efficiency and conservation. The committee, named Roanoke County Community Leaders Environmental Action Roundtable and known by the acronym RC-CLEAR, consists of two citizens from each of the five magisterial districts, appointed by their respective Supervisor, plus one senior county staff member.
Our program, “An Overview of Roanoke County’s Program to Reduce Energy Consumption – Citizens, Businesses and Government Working Together” will be presented by Anne-Marie Green, Director of General Services, County of Roanoke.
Ms. Green will explain and discuss the Roanoke County Energy Audit Program and other initiatives developed by citizen/government partnership. This program will help residents to reduce their energy consumption, thereby reducing their energy costs.
This will be a VERY informative program that will affect every one of us! For further information, please contact Richard Evans at (540)815-1905.
