Green Building Dashboard/Article 22
The Green Building Dashboard is designed to profile all projects that have been subject to the City's green building ordinance Section 22.20 - Green Building Requirements since its adoption in August 2010 through present day. It is the City's intention that the data presented will provide insight as to how buildings are being designed in keeping with the City's initiatives on building energy use and efficiency, sustainability, and resiliency.
The Green Building Requirements ensure that major new projects and substantially rehabilitated buildings are planned, designed, and constructed using environmentally sustainable and energy-efficient practices to minimize adverse environmental impacts as they are occupied and operated.
Projects are subject to Section 22.20 when:
- they exceed 25,000 gross floor area AND
- require a Special Permit under any provision of the Zoning Ordinance OR
- are subject to Section 19.50 – Building and Site Requirements
Please visit the Green Building Requirements webpage for more information on the requirements and the review process.
NOTE: The data and information presented here is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to revision or retraction at any time. The City does not mandate that projects achieve LEED Certification through the Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). Rather, the intent of the green building ordinance is to use LEED as a technical framework to ensure that buildings throughout the City achieve a higher level in building energy use and efficiency, sustainability, and resiliency.
