Salt Lake Mayor Announces Environmental Initiative
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Mayor Rocky Andersen announced October 11th
that Salt Lake City will encourage the construction of
environmentally friendly buildings as part of a wide-ranging
environmental program called Salt Lake City Green. The mayor
established a High Performance Buildings Task Force to improve
guidelines and standards for new buildings and will modify city
buildings to meet efficiency standards. Those standards will be
present in the new Salt Lake City Library, which "embodies many
characteristics associated with high performance or 'green' building
practices," according to City planning director Stephen Goldsmith.
Andersen is an LDS Church member, but doesn't participate.
