We are very proud of the ways that our neighbors green their routines-- almost entirely on a volunteer basis! Most people who live, work and go to school here would be surprised to know that there are many laws on the books to support sustainable practice. To them, living sustainably just makes good common sense. Yet sometimes laws are necessary to provide more structure or specifc guidance than a policy would. This page serves as a reference index to those laws.

Your first place to look for information is Municode. There, you ask access our city's complete Code of Ordinances and Unified Land Development Code. This index assists you in focusing your search.
