On August 8, VACo and VML will hold a one-day forum for local governments that may be interested in the Go Green Government Challenge. It will be held at the Rockingham County Fire and Rescue Classroom, 20 East Gay Street, Building A, Harrisonburg, VA 22802.
The purpose of the Forum will not only be to provide information about the Go Green Government Challenge, but such other related issues of interest to local governments as Virginia Tech’s Environment and Sustainability Management System and the Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ’s) Environmental Excellence Program. Information will also be provided on the status of Chesapeake Bay cleanup efforts, which is very timely subject to many local governments because of the looming “mid-point assessment” of the Chesapeake Bay TMDL program.
Also, Deputy Secretary of Natural Resources Angela Navarro will also speak about the McAuliffe Administration’s “Clean Power” and other initiatives. Other presenters will include Harry Gregori, Faculty Fellow, Virginia Tech; and James Davis-Martin, Chesapeake Bay Program Manager, DEQ.
The fee for attending the Forum is $25. Questions may be directed to Larry Land.
