Green Building Program Board of Supervisors Public Hearings

Since 2001, the County of Marin has adopted local green building standards that exceed state codes. The current standards were adopted in November 2016 and went into effect January 1, 2017. However, the County’s green building framework has not undergone a substantial update since 2010. Best practices have evolved since then, and this update seeks to incorporate new policies to make buildings in Marin more energy efficient, comfortable, and affordable to operate.

The new standards maintain Marin’s legacy commitment to sustainability while enhancing flexibility and clarity for applicants. These draft codes are expected to go to the Board of Supervisors for consideration in early 2018.

We welcome review, questions, and comments by any interested member of the public. Please submit feedback via email to Alice Zanmiller or call (415) 473-2797.
