[ARCHIVED] City now accepting nominations for Operation Green Street neighborhood contest

For Immediate Release
Date: August 19, 2013

The City of Savannah wants to know why the homes on your street deserve a free “green” make-over courtesy of Operation Green Street. In partnership with the Savannah branch of the U.S. Green Building Council, the City’s Operation Green Street initiative will bring together volunteer building professionals, donated building materials and a big day of service to improve the energy efficiency of up to 80 Savannah homes. Residents who would like to put the homes of their neighborhood in the running can complete the online nomination form at Nominations will be accepted from now until October 15.

Last year, Operation Green Street improvements included installing water heater insulation, attic hatch insulation, weather-stripping and compact fluorescent light bulbs in local homes with the help of volunteers from multiple states and countries. This year, the street that receives the highest number of nominations by the Oct. 15 cut-off will earn a visit from Operation Green Street, with a focus on the top-voted block. In the event of a tie, a winning street will be chosen by the City’s Thrive Sustainability Committee. Homes on the winning street will receive donated materials and volunteers from the local green building industry will assist with installation.
