Time: 00:01:23 - 00:04:39
Case 08-06-9 - Office of Planning -- ZRR: Sustainability
(Text Amendment) This hearing will consider general recommendations for changes to the zoning regulations in relation to sustainability. The theme of the majority of the recommendations is reduction of climate change inducing greenhouse gasses. Reduction of greenhouse gasses can be accomplished through zoning tools designed to decrease auto-reliance through improved walkability, increase energy conservation and renewable energy production, and increase vegetation. Climate change recommendations are cross-cutting and many simultaneously address additional sustainability issues, such as water quality protection and energy efficiency. The recommendations in this document are organized into the following specific categories of recommendations: Integrating Land Use & Mobility, Energy Conservation & Renewable Energy Production, Water & Sensitive Resource Conservation, Food Security, Green Jobs, and Large Area Development.
