Event Notes:

The state of California now requires all cities to promote landscape water conservation on new projects. Many Bay Area cities also have requirements to meet the Bay-Friendly Basics scorecard. Successful implementation of these requirements needs to begin at the initial site layout.
What are the new requirements? How do they influence the look of a development? What are strategies to efficiently integrate these sustainability requirements into the project design? How do these requirements benefit a project? These and more will be explained.
Free for Build It Green Members, only $10 for non-members.
