Environmental Leadership Award

2017 Environmental Leadership Award Winner:

Congratulations Bill Striegler and the Snowmass Timbers Club

the recipients of the 2017 Environmental Leadership Award. 

Bill is the Facilities Director for the Timbers Club, and he has played an instrumental role in significantly retrofitting the buildings to become much more energy efficient. Thanks to Bill, the Timbers Club is a prime example of how easy and beneficial being environmentally conscious can be. The Timbers Club realized a 55,000 kWh savings after implementing lighting upgrades in 2015, and the 5 year average energy consumption for the facility is down 13%. This not only results in energy savings, but it results in significant utility bill expense reductions for the Timbers and their residents. 

We want to applaud Bill for sticking his neck out for new energy efficient technology, and for continuing to do so. Way to go, Bill!

The EAB was pleased to present the award to Bill at the AREDAY evening reception. Shown below is EAB member Carol Gaudin, Bill Striegler, and EAB Chair Debbie Shore (left to right).

2018 Nomination Process:

Nominations for the 2018 Environmental Leadership Award will open in November, 2017.

Projects will be evaluated as much as possible on the quantifiable results that positively affect the environment. Nominees should be organizations or businesses located and/or operating in the Town, or impacting the Town and regional environment. Other nominations outside of these criteria are welcomed and will be considered.

In selecting awardees, the Board will consider the following criteria:

  • Success: Can the impact(s) of the project/action be measured against a stated goal?
  • Cost effectiveness: Does the project/action achieve much for little expense?
  • Applicability: Are the action's effects easily reproduced, or do they lend themselves to widespread use? Are they likely to encourage other actions to benefit the Town environment?
  • Leadership: Does the project/action demonstrate vision, foresight, or persistence?
  • Visibility: Is the project/action highly visible? How has the community been made aware of it?
  • Impact on the Town of Snowmass Village: Does the project/action enhance the Town’s public image?
  • Type of Positive Benefit: What positive benefits are created as a result of the project/action? These might include preservation of a valuable resource or restoration/enlargement of one; removal/reduction of negative conditions; written and/or graphic material that will educate and inspire Town residents
