Green Building Ordinance Presentation

A presentation is planned for this Thursday March 25th from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Meadow Park in San Luis Obispo to discuss SLO County’s plan to develop its own green building ordinance (2333 Meadow Street). This plan is somewhat controversial as it would exceed state requirements for energy efficiency, which are already the nations toughest, and result in new homes being 30% more energy efficient than just 10 years ago. The concern is that such an ordinance will further slow development and make it more expensive and harder to build housing anywhere in the area. The meeting is being co-sponsored by SLO Green Build, the area U.S. Green Build Council, the county Air Pollution Control District, and Pacific Gas and Electric Co.
