Creation of the Commission
The City Council first discussed forming a committee on November 5, 2019 and agreed to form a Green Building Task Force on December 10, 2019. The purpose of the Task Force is to work with city staff and the council liaison to make program component recommendations of a green building program.

Purpose & Responsibilities 
The Council identified the effort to develop Green Building policies as a top priority to implement the Comprehensive Plan. The changes are intended to encourage an increased use of sustainable materials and environmentally efficient design elements. Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by efficiently using energy, water and other resources.

Task Force members will be appointed by the City Council and will serve six months.

Council Liaison
Joe Deets and Michael Pollock
