The Baltimore Commission on Sustainability holds regular monthly meetings on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 4pm in the Department of Planning boardroom, 417 E. Fayette St. 8th Floor. All meetings are open to the public.
What is Sustainability?
We define sustainability as “Meeting the environmental, social, and economic needs of Baltimore without compromising the ability of future generations to meet these needs.” The purpose of the Sustainability Plan is to:
- Engage the Baltimore community in a comprehensive discussion on sustainability
- Inventory existing programs, organizations, and resources
- Articulate and prioritize sustainability goals for the Baltimore community
- Serve as roadmap for future legislation, public/private partnerships, programs, educational campaigns, etc.
If considering printing the Baltimore Sustainability Plan, please note that it is 132 pages. Print 2 pages per sheet double sided to conserve paper.
City Mandated to Establish Green Building Standards
In August 2007, Council Bill 07-0602 mandated the City establish Green Building Standards for commercial and multi-family residential buildings over 10,000 square feet being either newly constructed or extensively modified. The requirements were intended to be phased in, affecting City- owned buildings as of July 1, 2008, City-subsidized buildings as of January 1, 2009, and finally all other buildings as of July 1, 2009. The City has issued an RFP to engage a consultant to assist with developing and implementing the new code standards and procedures that are required.
