Sustainable Building Citizens Advisory Committee


This is an informal committee (attendance not mandatory) comprised of building professionals, owner-builders, educators, government officials, students, and anyone who has an interest in being involved with the Sustainable Building Program and our efforts to promote sustainable development locally.

The intent of the Committee meetings is to share resources and provide programmatic support. Meetings will usually be held at Willow Bend Environmental Education Center, however, meetings can also be hosted at other locations around the community.

Our planned meetings for 2019 are as follows:

  • January 16th - Update on Code/Policy Adoptions and Initiatives
  • March 13th - Rainwater Harvesting for Domestic Use
  • May 15th - 2020 Awards and Expo
  • July 17th - Sustainable Building Tour
  • September 18th - Permitting of Alternative Materials and Methods
  • November 20th - Checklist Update
