Staff and the city’s consultant from Global Green USA will present information on the steps taken to date to craft a program based on input received from the city’s advisory group, known as the Green Ribbon Committee, and feedback received at two joint City Council/Planning Commission workshops held in March and June.
“We’ve finalized the Green Building Program approach to focus on voluntary aspects of the program for most projects,” said Pat Saley, acting director of Planning and Environmental Services. “We look forward to presenting the proposed program at this Planning Commission meeting for a recommendation to the City Council in October.”
The agenda and staff report for the meeting will be available on the city’s website, and the meeting will be broadcast on Channel 19 and available for streaming through the city’s website.
