Chula Vista Neighborhood Development Workshop

Like many cities in California, Chula Vista has adopted energy efficiency standards for buildings that are above the minimum prescribed by the State of California. The purpose of these standards, commonly known as the City’s “Reach Code,” are to reduce energy use, save operating costs, improve air quality, and lower the community’s greenhouse gas footprint. The City is now exploring ways that LEED for Neighborhood Development could be used to augment that reach code by evaluating the design of entire communities and incorporating reductions in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from land use and transportation considerations.

The City and its technical assistance team, led by Global Green USA and Criterion Planners, invites you to a briefing on this new exploratory project where you can learn more and provide feedback at this stage of conceptual design. Members of the public with interest or technical expertise in sustainable masterplanning, LEED-ND, energy codes, and the energy and Greenhouse Gas reduction impact of walkable/mixed-use communities, are particularly encouraged to attend.
