Sustainable Code Project

The Sustainable Code Project is one of a series of projects commissioned by the City's Office of Conservation and Sustainable Development (OCSD) and financed by a Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant. The purpose of the project is to amend the City's Unified Development Code and its supporting documents to implement the City's sustainable goals and policies as identified in the diagnostic report.  The proposals include proposed amendments related to urban agriculture, solar development standards, and other various sustainable standards.

Draft UDC Text Amendment Recommendations

Draft Urban Agriculture Amendments (September 13, 2013)

Solar Development Standards (March 2014)

Other (March 2014)

 

SUSTAINABLE CODE COMMITTEE

To assist in the development of these amendments, an ad-hoc committee of professional working in various fields related to sustainability (e.g. urban agriculture, solar, etc.), neighborhood representatives and developers has been formed.  This committee is known as the Sustainable Code Committee.

After meeting for approximately one year, the committee has concluded its work and has made its recommendations on the proposed urban agriculture solar development standards, and other sustainable standards.  The committee may be reconvened in the future if additional input and feedback is needed.
