City, county share props for LEAP program

Oops, our bad! Today’s cover story, which outlines 10 steps businesses and government can take right now to up the eco factor, also includes a list of major players leading our local green revolution.

On that list, we credit Kristel Riddervold, the city’s Administrative Coordinator, and Cynthia Adams, Climate Protection Programs Coordinator with leading the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP), a project which will retrofit buildings with efficiency technologies. Actually, that program is a joint effort (in the grant-getting and the implementing) of both the city and Albemarle County.

Says the county’s Community Relations Director Lee Catlin, "Our staff has actually been equal partners in obtaining this grant and implementing it throughout the city and county." Indeed! We apologize for the oversight.
