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.

Our comments system is designed to foster a lively debate of ideas, offer a forum for the exchange of ad hoc information, and solicit honest, respectful feedback about the work we do. We’re glad you’re participating. Here are a few simple rules to follow, which should be relatively straightforward.

1) Don’t call people names or accuse them of things you cannot support.
2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion. We’re trying to create a safe space for a wide range of people to express themselves, and we believe that goal can only be achieved through thoughtful, sensitive editorial control.
