The Town of Vienna Community Enhancement Commission today received the Environmental Excellence Award from Fairfax County VA. I'm proud to be a part of these hardworking folks who have accomplished much good for the environment, including:
- the Solarize program, which allows local residents to install solar panels on their homes at lower cost due to a group purchase
- participation on the VA Green Restaurant program, including the recognition of the VA Green Restaurant of the Year right here in Vienna -- Cafe Amouri!
- development of a program to conserve tree cover in Vienna
- removal of invasive English ivy from trees throughout Vienna
- sponsorship of an annual Green Expo in Vienna to educate residents on sustainability
Congratulations to Vienna's CEC! (David Steiner, Tara Ruzkowski, Jack Ruzkowski, and Maureen Alonso not pictured)
