TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL

FROM: CITY MANAGER

DATE: MAY 3, 2005

SUBJECT: INCENTIVES FOR ENERGY EFFICIENT BUILDING

RECOMMENDATION

Direct staff to prepare a report describing incentives that the City could offer developers to encourage the construction of energy efficient buildings.

BACKGROUND

Mayor Pro Tem Wolowicz has asked that the City Council direct staff to prepare a report describing incentives that the City could offer developers to encourage the construction of energy efficient buildings. His thought is not to place more requirements on builders through stricter code requirements, but to make it attractive for developers to design and construct "green buildings."

Respectfully submitted,

Les Evans

City Manager
