REVIEW ITEMS. <br /> <br />3.1 Green Building Committee Mission—How are we doing? <br />(Denyelle Nishimori) <br />? <br /> Review of mission statement, goals, policies, and work program. <br />? <br /> Overview of staff input from the Building Working Group. <br />Staff summarized the Building Working Group’s discussion on requiring a green building <br />checklist on building submittal plans. Some members of the Building Working Group felt <br />that the checklist would be a stepping stone to mandatory green building while other <br />thought that if it were to be included in the application, it would be less of a an issue. <br />Generally the working group thought that there were alternatives to collecting data than <br />requiring a checklist no one would be enforcing, such as talking to green builders, taking <br />a survey, calling people direct, etc. The group stated that there needs to be significant <br />public involvement on green building to determine if a mandatory versus incentive-based <br />program makes sense. To date the Committee has talked about education and an <br />incentive-based program which seems to no longer be the direction. <br /> <br />
