Case Studies of this Municipality
All new projects in the City must be submitted for review to the Planning Division and the Development Review Committee (DRC). Through the DRC process, a “Green Review” is administered and each project is required to state how the requirements of Section 13-320 are being met. Before site plan approval is granted, staff and the developer will have agreed on the elements of the project that meet the Green Construction criteria. Those elements are then required to be added to the plans at the time of building permit submission. The building permit set is re-routed back through planning and checked against the approved site plan for green compliance. At any time after construction is completed, if any element of the green requirement is not being met for the project, Code Enforcement action may be applied.
