Community Planning Green Building Internship

The Green Building Intern will assist the Community Planning Division staff primarily on reviewing development projects against the City’s green building requirements, found in Article 22 of the Zoning Ordinance. Article 22.2 requires major new projects and substantially rehabilitated buildings to meet requirements of the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. The intern will assist in reviewing the applicant’s LEED checklist and narrative against the appropriate LEED rating system at each stage of the process, including special permit, building permit, and certificate of occupancy. The intern will also conduct research on municipal green building practices and programs. Background in architecture and/or LEED requirements preferred. Other planning duties may be assigned if time permits.
