Green Building

In December 2007, the City Council adopted the Tier 1 Green Building Recommendations of the Santa Clara County Cities Association. These recommendations included: adopt Build It Green and LEED as the green building standards of measure, require submittal of a green building checklist for all residential and commercial additions over 500 square feet and require all new municipal facilities over 5,000 to be LEED Silver. Beginning July 1, 2008, submittal of the green building checklists will be required.
