The City of Seattle and regional partners are identifying long-term green priorities and developing new code to address climate change.The public can comment on the draft code language at the Green Code Provisions Open House. Staff will be available to answer questions and give feedback to those who want to comment.
What are Green Code Provisions?
Green code provisions for 2012 focus on long-term green priorities such as water conservation, material conservation, sustainable transportation and healthy landscapes. Some examples include promoting salvage instead of recycling, tightening up water irrigation and using more efficient hardware for buildings.
These provisions were formed from programs including Built Green, LEED, and the Living Building Challenge, which have driven the building industry toward long-term green priorities.
