We never run out of money to waste on little useless pet projects

Total waste of money. Someone please wake up!
"Any time we invest in things that are our homes and our community, our contractors that do work here, our residents for whom healthy homes are a good thing, our children, these are all part of a 'green city', a healthy city helping with some of the economic stability and really keeping a lot of those resources local," said Kristel Riddervold, environmental administrator.' WHAT?

If Cville were serious about this effort, which they're not, they would have already put dirt on top of all public buildings an started roof top gardens and such. This is a bogus handout effort to some friends.

Maybe if the City would stop every postage-stamp residual lot from having apartments built on it, emissions would be going down, not up.

This is nothing more than another Solyndra scandal, just a smaller amount. Where Solyndra took at least a half-billion public dollars and then declared bankruptcy,this waste of taxpayer cash is less.Perhaps some investigative journalism is needed to see who will profit from this.
Strange how the money trail usually leads back to a politician,family member,contributor or friend.

LOL I wonder which councilman they're friends with and who will be getting a five digit consulting kickback this time. I suppose we can just raise property taxes again once these things drain the coffers.

Norris is leaving, in other words, he's bilked his position on the council for as much as could get. Huja is still there, still got his hands out.

Dave still has a few months left, and has said nothing
but great things about LEAP before....even money
Hujaman is always ready ...5 to 2 odds here
Galvin never tires of telling you she is an architect....7 to 1 odds here
Szakos ....well what can you say....has she said no to anything yet?
1 to 5 odds , if she can walk and talk at the meeting she's a shoe in.
Dede Smith..an ideologue by any other name
let's keep an eye out if she has the decency to recuse herself from
Frye Springs wanting to stop density in her meighborhood by rezonng .
However plenty of density fr everyone else and plenty of new crowded plots for
LEAP salivate over.
a bit of along shot here....9 to 1
and ms riddervold.....should always remember
you don't need to explain what you don't say.

GREAT IDEA !
There are still HUNDREDS of people who are not yet on the payroll at the City of Charlottesville or a local nonprofit.
$100,000 is a reasonable start, but we'll need millions more to create the Energy Commission, hire staff and build offices.
Come to think of it, I've got to start interviewing candidates. I'll need about $25,000 to hire a couple of Councilors as consultants to help me. Anyone have Jim Nix's phone number?

How about just turning off the Tonsler and UVa tennis court lights sometimes.
Like at 1am on a dreary 38 degree drizzle.
Why are they always on?

These improvements may lower your monthly utility bill but they increase your rent through the initial costs and your annual maintainance bills through complcated unperfected systems.
(a typical HVAC circut board for an ultra high efficincey unit costs MORE than the entire high efficinecy unit assembly)
Also, the incentives quickly become mandates.
Be careful what you wish for.

I guess doing fluff like this is far easier than addressing tens of millions of dollars in unfunded retirement obligations.

Sounds like a great and forward looking idea to reduce energy consumption and help the family budgets and the environement. A win-win solution
