Sustainable Building Citizens Advisory Committee


This is an informal committee (attendance not mandatory) comprised of building professionals, owner-builders, educators, government officials, students, and anyone who has an interest in being involved with the Sustainable Building Program and our efforts to promote sustainable development locally.

The intent of the Committee meetings is to share resources and provide programmatic support. Meetings will usually be held at Willow Bend Environmental Education Center, however, meetings can also be hosted at other locations around the community.

Meetings will be held quarterly in 2020. The schedule is as follows, with tentative topics:

  • March 11th- New resources for gray water systems
  • June 10th- Alternative Technology Advisory Group
  • September 9th- Promoting and incentivizing sustainable building
  • December 9th- Checklist updates
All meetings are from 3:30 - 5 pm.
