As a new part of their Green Initiative, The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls have created designated parking spaces for environmentally friendly cars. The “preferred parking” spots are being tested at Church Landing and the Inn at Mill Falls, where there is one space at each location to start.
“Our Green Team came up with the idea,” says Gail Batstone, General Manager of the Inns. “Our green team includes members from each department within the hotel. The team’s intention, in respect to signifying these spaces, is to increase consumer awareness and encourage guests to use lower emission transportation.”
Ms. Batstone adds that the Inns wanted to build upon their current Green Mission Statement, which describes several ways the company is making environmental efforts in all areas of operation. According to the initiative, “We continually seek improvements and initiatives to lessen the impact on the local and global environment.”
The Inns plan to add more designated hybrid spaces if the project proves successful. Meanwhile, the management is looking forward to guest feedback. Feel free to share your thoughts!Carrie Reed The Mill Falls Blogging Team
