Quinn, the New York Chapter of the US Green Building Council will form a NYC Green Codes Task Force to recommend changes to “green” the laws and regulations that govern construction in New York City. The task force will create a report to be delivered to the Mayor and the Speaker by the end of the year.

The Green Codes Task Force will consist of a Steering Committee and an Industry Advisory Committee that will offer oversight and eight Technical Committees that will generate recommendations based on the field-specific expertise of their members.

  1. do you think this committee is going to do anything useful?

    • I love the idea of your weekly chellange. The photo is helpful. Do all the weekly chellanges come from you? What about changing it up a bit. Maybe your readers could make suggestions? For example, my chellange to you would be to reach into your cupboard and grab two can goods and do bicep curls and tricep curls. Maybe start with 15 on each side? Each day add two more to your routine. You can do anything you set your mind to.
