The City is looking for nine qualified people to serve on the Green Building Task Force, a newly formed committee designed by the City Council to recommend green building initiatives (including what should be mandatory and voluntary) and suggest a model green building ordinance.
Applicants should have demonstrated experience in the application of green building codes in the following areas:
- Design sector
- Material and component manufacturing and supply
- Construction sector
- Research sector
- Green roof industry sector
- Renewable energy industry sector
- Energy efficiency industry sector
- Water quality/capture requirements
The Council identified the effort to develop Green Building policies as a top priority to implement the Comprehensive Plan. The changes are intended to encourage an increased use of sustainable materials and environmentally efficient design elements. Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by efficiently using energy, water and other resources.
Task Force members will be appointed by the City Council and will serve for at least six months. Councilmember Joe Deets will serve as a liaison.
Applications are due by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31. Interviews will be held in February.
