Salt Lake City To Require LEED For New Buildings
"The ordinance also endorses Mayor Rocky Anderson's executive order mandating that municipal buildings - such as a new police and fire administration building, fire station, east-side police precinct and Sorenson Unity Center - also meet Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) standards."
"'It's a tremendous first step toward encouraging in every way possible greater efficiency in design and material used for buildings in our community,' Anderson said after the vote. 'High-performance buildings should be the norm. Municipal governments have a huge role to play in bringing about that progress.'"
