Free public workshop about making RVA more green | Environment
To develop the city of Richmond’s Sustainability Plan, RVA green: A Roadmap to Sustainability, Mayor Dwight C. Jones will host a free public workshop to hear from residents, business owners, and everyone who comes to Richmond to live, work, and play. At this workshop Mayor Jones will premiere the city’s exciting sustainability video. The workshop will be held:
Thursday, June 9, 2011
6 – 8 p.m.
The Carillon in Byrd Park, 1300 Blanton Avenue
Registration and light refreshments begin at 5 p.m.
The Sustainability Plan is part of Mayor Jones’ Green Richmond Initiative created to support the city’s sustainability goals. Those goals are to improve the quality of life for residents, to create a healthy environment and to enhance economic opportunities in the city. During the workshop the city will present work done to date on the Richmond Sustainability Plan and provide the opportunity for community input to develop strategies for the creation of a specific plan to enhance the quality of life in the city of Richmond.
Over the next nine months, the city will work with the community to develop a master plan for sustainability. Once the city has created the framework and measures, it will report annually on those metrics and use the framework to assess future sustainability efforts for city government and community.
