Steps to Implementation

The stakeholder group was in full agreement that supporting a consistent regional standard for local green building programs in Denver Metro is in the best interest of each jurisdiction and the entire region.

Because the different building code jurisdictions in the region are at various stages of readiness to create and implement their own local green building program, the stakeholder group determined that incremental steps would be the best way for a community to appropriately prepare for effective implementation of a green building program.

Introduction

The specific recommendations presented in this chapter were created by the stakeholder group to provide jurisdictions with clearly defined incremental steps – presented as milestones, tools and resources – to support implementation of a regionally consistent local green building program.
