The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) is hosting a Priority Green open house on January 23, 2014, 9:00 a.m. to noon. Come learn how Priority Green, DPD’s voluntary green building incentive program, is changing in 2014 and how it complements conservation goals at Seattle City Light and Seattle Public Utilities. The open house will be in room 4080 (40th floor) of the Seattle Municipal Tower located at 700 5th Ave. in Seattle.
This is a chance to learn and ask questions about the proposed requirements for energy and water conservation, stormwater management, waste reduction, health and indoor air quality.
Seattle City Light’s Energy Conservation team will be available for questions about their financial incentives for residential new construction including a new incentive for single family projects. The program encourages developers and builders to incorporate energy efficient measures into building design, construction and operation. The new incentives are meant to better align with projects using Priority Green Expedited.
Seattle Public Utilities and King County GreenTools will be available for questions about the recently adopted recycling requirements for construction and demolition materials through landfill disposal bans, facility certification and waste diversion reporting.
