City to Host Green Building Program Orientation Meeting

Post Date:January 14, 2020 6:05 PM

Green CityThe City of West Hollywood has updated its Green Building Program and will host a program orientation meeting on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 at 2 p.m. at Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard. Join City staff members for a presentation about the recent changes and latest updates associated with the West Hollywood Green Building Program (effective January 1, 2020).

In 2001, the City of West Hollywood proudly established “Responsibility for the Environment” as one of its core values. The adoption of the West Hollywood Green Building Program in 2007 — the first-in-the-state green building code — was one of several ways the City demonstrated its commitment to the environment. The program required new buildings and remodels to strive towards energy efficiency, improve the health of the environment and community, and help the City shape a sustainable future.

The West Hollywood Green Building Program was updated in 2019 to keep pace with progressive national sustainable building design standards, the State’s Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen), and ever-evolving local and regional industry trends. With input from City staff and community stakeholders, including residents, local business owners, and local industry professionals (learn more about the City’s process here), the West Hollywood Green Building Program includes flexible development standards, opportunities to innovate, high-achieving measures, and a clear path towards continuing the City's tradition of leadership in climate action.
