December 6, 2004

Mr. Chairman: It is with great pleasure that I notify my colleagues and the public of an outstanding achievement. Earlier this year, Michael Aho of my staff discussed an idea with me - that of applying for a Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) grant for low impact development at our office site. As you know, the Providence Supervisor's office is adjacent to Fire Station 30 and at present, has only one storm drain for the property.

Earlier this fall my office was notified of the $40,000 grant that was awarded to our grant team. The team consists of staff from my office, the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services - including Stormwater Management, Stormwater Planning and Facilities Management - and also the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District.

The project, entitled "Demonstrating Innovation: A Stormwater Retrofit at the Providence Supervisor's Office," will serve as a demonstration project for three low impact development/best management practices techniques: a green roof, a retention rain garden and permeable pavers.

Please see the article I wrote on the reverse of this page and also note the Action item (A1) in today's Board package. I look forward to the Board's approval of our grant program.
