Arlington to Host ‘Green Games’ Ceremony — Arlington County is hosting an awards ceremony for its Green Games business sustainability competition. The ceremony will honor achievement in a number of green categories, including energy efficiency, water use, waste diversion and recycling, and transportation choices. “During the year-long competition, more than 100 offices and buildings — representing about 15 million square feet of office space, or one-third of Arlington’s total office space — raced to reduce energy use, waste, and water and set other environmental goals,” the county said in a press release. The ceremony will be held tomorrow morning at Artisphere in Rosslyn. [Arlington County]

    Passed by one of Arlington’s finest this morning issuing someone something that is or is not a quota filler.

      Good – if the person deserved it then they’re doing their job and hope they keep it up.

      It would be interesting to compare the statistics for arrests, traffic summons, parking tickets, etc. that occured prior to the memo with the numbers after the “rescinding of the Proactivity expectations 2012” memo.
