Goleta Honored

The City of Goleta received the 2012 Public Policy Leadership Award from the Central California Coast Chapter (C4) of the U.S. Green Building Council for its efforts in the areas of green building and sustainable living on the Central Coast.

“Goleta’s program represents a significant success in bringing  greener buildings to the community, said Michelle Zimney, Chair of the Green Awards. “The City’s focus on listening to multiple stakeholders meant they were able to craft a code that is flexible, yet meaningful. Builders and architects will have a variety of green rating tools available to them to help design and construct better performing buildings.”
