Post Date:08/10/2018 1:09 PM
The City of Reno is proud to introduce Enterprise Green Communities. A free community workshop will be held on Thursday, August 16, 2018 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Greater Nevada Field.

Enterprise Green Communities Criteria is the nation’s leading green building framework for affordable housing and community development. The City is hosting the workshop to encourage and push into motion affordable green housing in Reno.

The 2015 Criteria continues a 10-year tradition of capturing the collective experience of leading affordable housing developers and environmental, public health and green building experts to provide a clear, cost-effective framework for affordable housing.

Certified Enterprise Green Communities properties cost less to operate and maintain, use fewer natural resources, generate less waste and contain fewer toxic materials, contributing to a healthier environment.

The agenda, which is attached, includes a welcome from HUD Regional Administrator Jimmy Stracner and Reno City Councilmember David Bobzien, plus a keynote from Ivan Carroll, Project Manager, GIV Group, a Green Affordable Housing Developer. RSVP.
