No, hell is not freezing over. Some companies want, crave or need new regulation bc when done right, regulation creates clarity and stability in the market. That’s good for business and protects consumers too.

Good discussion on at CityLab2018. Former VA SecCommerce Maurice Jones says cities shouldn’t wait for the big funds to come but find a great project and link it to a single investor. In short, control your destiny. What do you think ?

Great convo at with my ALX neighbor on Amazon’s H2Q search. “Amazon could be 3 miles from my house.” Calls H2Q effort “a distraction” from what cities really need to do to create jobs and economic development. “Invest locally.”

Great to see this commitment by 19 cities to make all new buildings net zero by 2030. In Alexandria, we set that same goal back in 2009. We're updating our green building policy this year; time to recommit.
