BOARD MATTER

July 26, 2004

Madam Chairman: I hope that our colleagues have read about the outstanding work that has been initiated by Jeanette Stewart of Falls Church. Recently, Jeanette was named EcoSteward of the Year by the EcoStewards Alliance.

Peter Kelsey, founder and president of EcoStewards Alliance, noted: "In just six years Jeanette's circle of influence has expanded from the 10,000 square foot certified backyard wildlife habitat she began in 1998 at her condominium, to the green, living roof retrofitted there last year on one of the 35-year-old buildings."

Supervisor DuBois and I recently took a tour of the green roof and rain garden at the Yorktowne Square Condominiums in Falls Church. Soon, I hope to add another green roof project to Providence District, as a member of my staff is applying for a grant from the Department of Conservation and Recreation; I am sure Jeanette looks forward to this project.

Therefore, Madam Chairman, I move that the Office of Public Affairs prepare a Certificate of Recognition for Jeanette Stewart on behalf of the Board of Supervisors for her environmental stewardship and leadership in environmentally-oriented projects and initiatives and that she be invited to come before the Board at a future meeting to receive this recognition.
