I had a great time last Thursday at another one of Rutherfoord’s Trends in Building Green seminars. We got to hear from Tommy Russo from Akridge, Eric Oliver from EMO Energy Solutions, Bobby Christian from Tangible, and Tom Mawson, the Executive Director for the U.S. Green Building Council’s National Capital Region Chapter. 

I made a presentation outlining our region’s local jurisdictional green building trends, policies and incentives for private commercial development from a zoning, planning and land-use perspective. Here’s the slide show from the presentation. There was quite a bit more explanation beyond what is outlined in the slides, including bonding and other security requirements for incentives and a number of new initiatives a number of localities are currently pursuing. If anyone has any questions about what any of these localities (Arlington County, City of Alexandria, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Prince William County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County and Washington, D.C.) are doing, please feel free to post a question and I can respond in more detail.
