Green building is a simple concept: design buildings and use land to save energy and reduce waste. In doing so, residents and businesses will have lower utility bills and improved air quality. Based on a simple point system, architects and developers must incorporate green design standards into their building plans. These features are intended to:

  • Save energy
  • Conserve water
  • Reduce Waste
  • Add longevity and durability
  • Protect natural resources
  • Create a healthier living environment

Future Sustainable Goals

Green Building is the first step in a whole systems approach to city planning in which the building, neighborhood, community, and region all work together in conjunction with transportation, housing, economic development, and environmental sustainability.
