ESC Panel Discussion: WFC EDP Opportunities for Sustainable Stormwater and Energy Infrastructure

Thursday, May 24, 2018


To inform discussion of the RFDP for the West Falls Church Economic Development project, the ESC will host a panel discussion on "Opportunities for Sustainable Stormwater and Energy Infrastructure", addressing two important environmental opportunities for the site:
Stormwater capture: how can we integrate trees, rain gardens and sustainable landscaping practices into the site to capture stormwater and provide beautiful green spaces for our community? 
Energy infrastructure: how can this site be designed to maximize energy efficiency, use renewable energy sources and ensure the resilience of energy supply? 
This event is a follow-up to the ESC's February panel discussion on sustainable, climate-resilient development (available at http://www.fallschurchva.gov/171/Environmental-Sustainability-Council). Sustainable infrastructure can create value and reduce risks for this project and the City as a whole  -- and must be included at the earliest stages of  planning to be effective.
