As a part of its ongoing commitment to water use efficiency, City of Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) has teamed up with Dallas hotels/motels and restaurants to encourage them to continue, and in some cases, expand their efforts to save water. The program is strictly voluntary and is not regulated by the City of Dallas.
Participating hotels and motels are encouraging guests to embrace fewer linen and towel changes and informing guests that water is served in dining rooms by request only. The City will also provide free public service announcements to participating lodging facilities to educate their guests about the program.
Dallas area restaurants are also being encouraged to serve water on request only. This simple measure not only saves our water resources but also provides energy savings through less frequent dishwasher and heated water use.
Free marketing and promotional materials are provided for participating establishments. See industry page links below under “Learn more about the Dallas Hospitality Industry Program.”
The initiative is supported by the Hotel Association of North Texas, the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, Downtown Dallas, the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau, Tarrant Regional Water District and the North Texas Municipal Water District.
Hello CC with The FEED here… State Fair of Texas is upon us and officials say they are expecting a record breaking crowd, as we hear the new voice of Big Tex. Fair Park officials say an additional football game at the newly renovated Cotton Bowl could also attribute to the big crowds, giving the City an economic boost.
The Cotton Bowl is ready for it's busiest time of the year... the State Fair of Texas. In addition to adding more seating capacity, the Cotton Bowl now features a new and improved façade that allows visitors to look out into the stadium during the day and into the night… but officials say the new VIP area makes it a premier sports and evens venue.
New public art is showing up all around the City. Two new works by Dallas artists were installed this month at the entrance to Love Field Airport. Public art department employees worked into the night to oversee the installation of Tom Orr’s “Intersected Passage.”
