SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: THANK YOU. WE'D LIKE TO ASK JONATHAN PARFREY, HOLLY SCHROADER AND ARNOLD SACHS TO COME FORWARD. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.


KIRSTEN JAMES: GOOD MORNING. MY NAME IS KIRSTEN JAMES AND I'M THE WATER QUALITY DIRECTOR AT HEAL THE BAY. WE COMMEND THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS FOR LOOKING AT THE THREE CRITICAL ISSUES FOR THE FUTURE SUSTAINABILITY OF LOS ANGELES: LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT, GREEN BUILDING AND DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING. TOGETHER THESE ORDINANCES WILL BE A CRITICAL NEXT STEP IN THE COUNTY FROM BOTH AN ENVIRONMENTAL AND AN ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVE. NOT ONLY WILL THESE ORDINANCES LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS, BUT THEY WILL ALSO, IN THE FUTURE, CREATE THOUSANDS OF GREEN JOBS. TODAY I WILL FOCUS MY COMMENTS ON THE LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT ORDINANCE, SINCE THIS IS MOST CLOSELY TIED WITH THE WORK WE DO ON A DAILY BASIS. WE APPLAUD THE COUNTY FOR ADDRESSING THE ESSENTIAL CONNECTION BETWEEN FUTURE DEVELOPMENT IN L.A. COUNTY AND THE IMPLEMENTATION OF L.I.D. PRACTICES THROUGH THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN L.I.D. TO BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND COST EFFICIENT MEANS OF MANAGING STORM WATER AND ABATING WATER POLLUTION. IN FACT, AN E.P.A. REPORT RELEASED IN DECEMBER 2007 FOUND THAT APPLYING L.I.D. TECHNIQUES CAN REDUCE PROJECT COSTS AND IMPROVE ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE IN THE VAST MAJORITY OF CASES. MANY OTHER SUCH STUDIES AND REPORTS COME TO THE SAME CONCLUSION. SINCE URBAN RUNOFF IS THE SINGLE GREATEST CONTRIBUTOR OF POLLUTION TO THE WATER BODIES IN L.A. COUNTY AND THROUGHOUT THE STATE, THE WIDESPREAD IMPLEMENTATION OF L.I.D. CONCEPTS IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT IN IMPROVING THE REGION'S WATER QUALITY. ALSO, IN ORDER FOR THE COUNTY TO COMPLY WITH UPCOMING T.M.D.L. REQUIREMENTS, THESE CONCEPTS WILL PROVE CRITICAL. ALSO, ANOTHER SIDE BENEFIT IS THAT L.I.D. CAN PROVIDE THE SORELY NEEDED BENEFIT OF AUGMENTING LOCAL WATER SUPPLIES. THUS, HEAL THE BAY STRONGLY SUPPORTS THE L.I.D .ORDINANCE WITH THE PROPOSED STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS. OF NOTE, THE SUGGESTED STAFF CHANGES THAT WERE PROPOSED LAST WEEK ARE CRITICAL TO THE SUCCESS OF THIS ORDINANCE, SO WE SUPPORT THE ORDINANCE WITH THE STAFF CHANGES. AS PROPOSED, THIS ORDINANCE WILL GO A LONG WAY IN REDUCING WATER QUALITY IMPACTS FROM DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS. AND WE ALSO SUPPORT THE GREEN BUILDING AND DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPE ORDINANCES, BECAUSE TOGETHER, THESE ORDINANCES WILL GREATLY IMPROVE THE SUSTAINABILITY OF L.A. COUNTY. THANK YOU.


SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: THANK YOU. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME. AND HANS ETTER, PLEASE COME FORWARD, ALSO.


JONATHAN PARFREY: THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR BURKE. MY NAME IS JONATHAN PARFREY, I'M THE DIRECTOR OF THE GREEN L.A. COALITION. I AM ALSO, BY WAY OF INTRODUCTION, THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE LOS ANGELES LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS AND ALSO A STEERING COMMITTEE MEMBER OF THE REGIONAL COLLABORATIVE ON GLOBAL WARMING, IN WHICH THE COUNTY HAS BEEN PARTICIPATING. OUR ORGANIZATION, THE GREEN L.A. COALITION, IS COMPOSED OF OVER 100 ORGANIZATIONS IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA. AND IT RANGES FROM THREE PEOPLE, HEAL THE BAY, ALL THE WAY TO COMMUNITIES FOR A BETTER ENVIRONMENT AND THE E.C.R. COMMUNITIES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE. OUR ORGANIZATION STRONGLY SUPPORTS THE GREEN BUILDING, LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT AND DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING ORDINANCES THAT ARE BEFORE YOU TODAY. THE WATER CONSERVATION ELEMENTS AS WELL AS THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY ELEMENTS THAT ARE PART OF THESE ORDINANCES HELPS THE BOTTOM LINE OF BUSINESSES THAT ARE STARTING IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, AND IT ALSO HELPS US MEET THE GLOBAL WARMING GOALS THAT ARE CONCERNING ALL OF US. AND I WOULD LIKE TO AGAIN THANK YOU FOR COMING UP WITH ORDINANCES THAT IN MY OPINION ARE FAR SMARTER THAN THE ONES THAT THE CITY OF L.A. IS PROPOSING. SO I THANK YOU FOR THAT.


SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: STATE YOUR NAME.


HOLLY SCHROADER: GOOD MORNING. HOLLY SCHROADER ON BEHALF OF THE BUILDING ADMINISTRATION, REPRESENTING ABOUT 650 COMPANIES THAT PROVIDE HOMES FOR OUR CITIZENS. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT. THESE ORDINANCES COME BEFORE YOU AFTER MONTHS OF WORK BY YOUR STAFF AND WORKSHOPS AND HEARINGS. AND IN SUM, THE B.I.A. IS PLEASED THAT THESE FINAL AMENDED VERSIONS OF THE ORDINANCES HAVE BEEN VERY RESPONSIVE TO THE COMMENTS OF THE BUILDING INDUSTRY AND HAVE REFLECTED THE REALITIES OF CONSTRUCTION AND LANDSCAPING PRACTICES. THEY WORK WITH AND BUILD ON CALIFORNIA'S EXISTING BUILDING CODES, WHICH ALREADY HAVE SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIONS. AS YOU KNOW, MOST INDUSTRIES WOULD RESIST ADDITIONAL MANDATES AND REGULATIONS, ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE STRINGENCY OF OUR EXISTING REQUIREMENTS. THEY CAN ADD TO COSTS. BUT A WELL-CRAFTED ORDINANCE CAN WORK WITHIN THE BUSINESS CYCLE OF A DEVELOPMENT PROJECT AND IT CAN RECOGNIZE THE DIFFERENCES IN STYLE, SCALE AND GEOGRAPHY OF THIS DIVERSE COUNTY, AND PROVIDE OPTIONS TO THE DEVELOPER. AND IN SHORT, A WELL-CRAFTED ORDINANCE CAN HELP THOSE WHO HAVE TO COMPLY SO THEY CAN ACTUALLY IMPLEMENT AND ACHIEVE THE RESULTS. YOU HAVE THREE ORDINANCES IN FRONT OF YOU. FIRST YOU HAVE A GREEN BUILDING ORDINANCE. AND THIS IS A SWEEPING ORDINANCE. IT AFFECTS EVERY NEW HOME CONSTRUCTED IN THE COUNTY. AND ACCORDINGLY, THE ORDINANCE INCORPORATES FLEXIBILITY WHILE STILL ENSURING ACCOUNTABILITY. IT ACKNOWLEDGES THE DIFFERENT REFERENCE GUIDELINES FOR GREEN BUILDINGS AND THE DIFFERENT GUIDELINES ARE RELEVANT FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF DEVELOPMENT. IT SETS AGGRESSIVE STANDARDS SUCH AS AN ADDITIONAL 15 PERCENT REDUCTION IN ENERGY USE FOR NEW HOMES BEYOND THE EXISTING CALIFORNIA CODE, WHICH IS THE MOST STRINGENT IN THE COUNTRY. THE B.I.A., AND OTHER EXPERTS IN CONSTRUCTION, SPENT HOURS WORKING WITH YOUR STAFF TO DESIGN A PROGRAM THAT WILL RAISE THE BAR FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN THE COUNTY. AND BECAUSE OF THEIR DILIGENCE, WE ARE PLEASED TO SAY WE SUPPORT THIS ORDINANCE. YOU HAVE TWO OTHER ORDINANCES IN FRONT OF YOU, ONE ON DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING AND ONE ON STORM WATER MANAGEMENT, CALLED THE LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT ORDINANCE. AGAIN THESE ARE VERY TECHNICAL ORDINANCES AND YOUR STAFF WORKED WITH US TO CRAFT REQUIREMENTS WE CAN IMPLEMENT SO WE CAN BE SURE WE ACHIEVE THE GOALS. FOR EXAMPLE, WE WORKED WITH OUR LANDSCAPE COMPANIES TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PLANS ON THE DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING LIST ARE AVAILABLE AND AFFORDABLE SO WE KNOW WE CAN ACTUALLY ACHIEVE THESE GOALS. THIS CARE AND ATTENTION TO IMPLEMENTATION IS CRITICAL. SO AGAIN WE ARE PLEASED TO SAY THAT WE SUPPORT THIS ORDINANCE. THE TOPIC OF STORM WATER MANAGEMENT AND THE L.I.D. TOPIC IS ONE OF THE MOST TECHNICAL OF THE THREE ORDINANCES. AND BY DESIGN, MANY OF THE IMPLEMENTATION DETAILS WILL BE DEFINED IN THE LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT MANUAL, WHICH IS STILL IN DRAFT. THE ORDINANCE ITSELF SETS BROAD STANDARDS. IN THE PAST WEEK SOME ADDITIONAL CRITERIA WERE SPECIFIED. AS STAFF FINALIZES THE MANUAL, WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING THE MEANINGFUL DIALOG WE'VE HAD ON THE OTHER ORDINANCES. SO IN SUMMARY, THE ORDINANCES LIKE THESE ONLY WORK WHEN THEY ARE THOUGHTFULLY CRAFTED WITH EXTENSIVE STAKEHOLDER INPUT. ONLY THEN CAN WE ACHIEVE THE SHARED GOALS OF WATER QUALITY, WATER CONSERVATION, ENERGY EFFICIENCY, INCREASED RECYCLING AND REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS. THESE ORDINANCES BUILD ON CALIFORNIA'S LONG HISTORY OF BEING A LEADER IN SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION. WE'VE WORKED WITH YOU TO DEVELOP THESE ORDINANCES AND NOW I MUST SAY THE REAL WORK BEGINS. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING THE VITAL WORK OF IMPLEMENTING THEM. AS YOU ADOPT THESE ORDINANCES, WE ASK THAT YOU DIRECT YOUR STAFF TO CONTINUE WORKING WITH US ON FINALIZING THE L.I.D. MANUAL AND WORKING ON IMPLEMENTATION. THANK YOU.


ARNOLD SACHS: GOOD AFTERNOON AGAIN, ARNOLD SACHS. JUST VERY QUICKLY. I BROUGHT THIS UP AT SOUTH BAY REGIONAL COUNCIL OF GOVERNANCE MEETING APPROXIMATELY TWO MONTHS AGO WHEN THEY WERE DISCUSSING WATER CONSERVATION. HAS ANYBODY MAYBE LOOKED INTO WHAT ATLANTA AND FULTON COUNTY ENACTED WHEN THEY JUST CAME THROUGH THEIR DROUGHT THAT LASTED FOR TWO YEARS? ANYTHING THAT WOULD BE RELEVANT TO THE SITUATION FACING L.A. I KNOW THAT THEY HAD ONE PROGRAM THAT THEY STARTED IN SOME OF THE COLLEGES AROUND ATLANTA WHERE THEY ELIMINATED FOOD SERVICE TRAYS. THE PROVIDERS FOR THE FOOD SERVICE, THE SUBCONTRACTORS, FOUND THAT THEY SAVED APPROXIMATELY 30 PERCENT ON THEIR WATER USAGE BY THE ELIMINATION OF FOOD SERVICE TRAYS IN THE SCHOOLS. THOSE KIND OF THINGS WOULD CERTAINLY BE HELPFUL IN L.A. THERE'S QUITE A FEW COLLEGES AROUND THE COUNTY AND IN THE SOUTH THAT MIGHT IMPLEMENT THAT KIND OF PROGRAM OR COULD SEE IF IT COULD BE FEASIBLY POSSIBLE TO EVEN START THAT PROGRAM, THAT IT WOULD BE FINANCIALLY VIABLE. ANYTHING LIKE THAT, ANYTHING THAT WOULD COME FROM ANOTHER AREA OF THE COUNTRY, AND I PICK ATLANTA BECAUSE THEY HAD A DEVASTATING DROUGHT FOR THE LAST APPROXIMATELY 2 1/2 YEARS THAT MIGHT BE ABLE TO BE APPLIED TO THE CITY OF L.A. WOULD CERTAINLY GO A LONG WAY.


HANS ETTER: AM I NEXT? MY NAME IS HANS ETTER, I AM A RESIDENT IN MARINA DEL REY AND COMMUNITY ACTIVIST. I'M FOR THIS ORDINANCE EXCEPT FOR THE EXEMPTIONS TO THE DEVELOPERS IN MARINA RAY. I THINK THEY SHOULD BE HELD TO THE SAME STANDARD AS EVERYONE ELSE. THE BUILDING IS BIG WHITE ELEPHANTS. AND PERFECT EXAMPLE IS THE ESPIRIT IN MARINA THAT SITS EMPTY WITH A MARINA THAT HAS MAYBE 15 TO 20 PERCENT OCCUPANCY. WHAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD IS IT IS CURRENTLY IN DEFAULT ON THE OTHER PROJECT WHICH IS BAR HARBOR. AND YOU CONTINUE PUTTING THESE BIG PROJECTS IN THE PIPELINE IN THE MARINA THAT DOESN'T FIT INTO THE MARINA, WHICH WAS BUILT FOR RECREATIONAL PURPOSE. IT'S ALMOST LIKE YOU LIVE IN A DIFFERENT WORLD WHERE IN FINANCIAL CRISIS, BANKS GOING DOWN DOESN'T EXIST AND I DON'T SEE HOW YOU EXPECT TO MAKE ANY MONEY IF THE BANK'S GOING TO END UP OWNING THESE BIG WHITE ELEPHANTS IN THE MARINA. I DON'T THINK THEY DESERVE ANY EXEMPTIONS, BECAUSE THEY DON'T, EVEN IF IT GETS PUT INTO THE DEEDS AND THE RESTRICTIONS OF ANY DEVELOPMENT, THEY DON'T FOLLOW THEM. PERFECT EXAMPLE IS MONTE CARLO THAT WAS DESIGNED TO BE FOR 62 YEARS AND OLDER, AND IT WAS APPOINTED A DEED RESTRICTION. AND AS WE JUST CHECKED OUT TODAY, IT WAS NOT BEING ENFORCED UNTIL SEVENTH OF APRIL I BELIEVE THIS YEAR. AND THAT'S NINE YEARS LATER AFTER THEY ARE ACTUALLY SIGNED AND AGREED TO THAT WAS GOING TO BE THE PURPOSE OF THAT PARTICULAR BUILDING. SO WE KNOW BASED ON EXPERIENCE IN THE MARINA WHAT WE GET PRESENTED WITH AND WHAT ACTUALLY THE PROJECT WILL BE IS ALWAYS A DIFFERENT STORY. ESPIRIT IS TYPICAL BUILDING THAT IS BUILT BY GREED AND SPECULATION, AND AS A RESULT THE COUNTY WOULD LOSE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OVER THE NEXT 30, 40 YEARS OF THE LENGTH OF THIS PROJECT IF AN EARTHQUAKE OR TSUNAMI DOESN'T TAKE IT OUT BEFORE THEN. THE LACK OF COOPERATION BY THE COMMUNITY, DIDN'T EVEN LISTEN TO US, IT'S REPREHENSIBLE THAT YOU DON'T REACH OUT TO YOUR ______. WE EVEN ASKED YOU AND I ASKED OUR SUPERVISOR BEFORE IF HE'D CONSIDER-- DON KNABE, IF YOU CONSIDER US STAKEHOLDERS IN OUR COMMUNITY. AND IF WE ARE SUCH STAKEHOLDERS, WE SHOULD HAVE A SAY IN OUR FUTURE AND THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. LAST TIME I ASKED YOU, I WAS PROMISED AN ANSWER AFTER MY THREE MINUTES WERE UP, BUT SINCE I HAVE TWO MINUTES, I GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE AN ANSWER NOW, AND THE REST OF THE SUPERVISORS. THEY ALSO OWN A PART OF THE MARINA DEL REY. WE ARE RESIDENTS HERE AND WE WON'T GO AWAY. WE WILL BE HERE FOR THE FUTURE, THANK YOU.


SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY?


SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR. FIRST OF ALL, LET ME THANK THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT, THE REGIONAL PLANNING DEPARTMENT AND THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS FOR THE STAFF WORK THEY HAVE DONE AND MORE IMPORTANTLY THE STAFF WORK THAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO IN THE DAYS AHEAD. I ALSO WANT TO THANK THE OFFICES OF-- ALL FIVE OFFICES' STAFFS OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, MY OWN STAFF, MEMBER BEN SALZMAN WHO HAS WORKED HARD ON THIS, AND NICOLE ENGLAND OF THE FIRST DISTRICT, AND CARLY CATONA OF YOUR DISTRICT, SUPERVISOR BURKE. JULIE MOORE OF SUPERVISOR KNABE'S DISTRICT AND PAUL NOVAK OF SUPERVISOR ANTONOVICH'S DISTRICT. THEY HAVE WORKED IN SOME DETAIL, CONSIDERABLE DETAIL TO GET TO THIS POINT. I WANT TO SAY IT IS A COMPROMISE THAT WE'RE ARRIVED AT, BUT IT'S MORE THAN A COMPROMISE. THE BALL HAS BEEN MOVED CONSIDERABLY FORWARD, AS WAS INDICATED BY SOME OF THE TESTIMONY YOU'VE HEARD TODAY. SO WITH THAT LET ME JUST READ A MOTION I WOULD JOINTLY PRESENT WITH SUPERVISOR BURKE. IT'S A BIT LONG AND I'LL TRY TO MAKE IT QUICK, BUT I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT WE GET THIS ALL ON THE RECORD. "LOS ANGELES COUNTY, LIKE MANY URBAN AREAS IN THE UNITED STATES, FACES SERIOUS ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES AS A RESULT OF UNSUSTAINABLE LAND USE POLICIES. WE CONTINUE TO SEND WELL OVER 50 PERCENT OF RAINWATER THAT FALLS IN URBANIZED AREAS STRAIGHT TO THE OCEAN INSTEAD OF ALLOWING IT TO NATURALLY RESTORE UNDERGROUND RESERVOIRS TO PROVIDE FOR OUR FUTURE WATER NEEDS. ADDITIONALLY, OUR CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS ARE NOT AS ENERGY EFFICIENT AS THEY SHOULD BE DESPITE THE FACT THAT BUILDINGS NATIONWIDE ACCOUNT FOR 30 PERCENT OF TOTAL ENERGY USE, 65 PERCENT OF EFFICIENCY USE AND 35 PERCENT OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS. OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS THIS BOARD OF SUPERVISORS HAS EMBARKED ON A SERIES OF CRITICAL INITIATIVES TO ADDRESS THESE ISSUES. OUR EFFORTS TO CUT ENERGY AND WATER USE INCLUDE ENACTING THE REQUIREMENT THAT ALL COUNTY FACILITIES GREATER THAN 10,000 SQUARE FEET BE CERTIFIED AT THE LEED-SILVER LEVEL OR HIGHER AND MUST PLANT DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING. OUR EFFORTS TO IMPROVE WATER QUALITY TUJUNGA WASH AND THE BIXBY MARSHLAND INTO GREEN SPACES FOR RESIDENTS. THESE TRIBUTARIES NOW PROVIDE VENUES FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION AND HABITAT RESTORATION AND HELP US ACHIEVE WATER SUPPLY, WATER CONSERVATION AND WATER QUALITY OBJECTIVES. THESE PILOT PROJECTS PROVE THAT THE TECHNOLOGY AND EXPERTISE EXIST TO BUILD COMMUNITIES AND MANAGE STORM WATER INTO MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE MANNER THAN HAS BEEN DONE IN PREVIOUS DECADES. DESPITE THESE POSITIVE EXAMPLES, OUR REGION AND STATE CONTINUE TO FACE A CLIMATE CHANGE CRISIS, POOR WATER QUALITY IN OUR BEACHES AND OCEAN OVERRELIANCE ON FOREIGN SOURCES OF FUEL AND ANY SERIOUS DROUGHT. TO TRULY MITIGATE THESE THREATS, LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUST GO BEYOND PILOT PROJECTS AND ACTUALLY INSTITUTIONALIZE BEST PRACTICES INTO LONG TERM COUNTY POLICIES. TO THAT END, THE ORDINANCES AND STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS THAT ARE BEFORE US TODAY WILL MANDATE THAT, WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS, ALL NEW DEVELOPMENT COMPLY WITH DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING REQUIREMENTS, LOW-IMPACT DEVELOPMENT, L.I.D., STORM WATER, BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES AND STRINGENT GREEN BUILDING STANDARDS, INCLUDING LEED REQUIREMENTS FOR BUILDING OF OVER 10,000 SQUARE FEET AND LEED-SILVER REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL BUILDINGS OVER 25, 000 SQUARE FEET. BASED UPON RECENT DEVELOPMENT TRENDS BY APPROVING THESE ORDINANCES AND STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS, THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS WOULD HELP REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS BY ROUGHLY 2,138 TONS AFTER JUST ONE YEAR, SAVE MORE THAN 14 MILLION GALLONS OF WATER THE FIRST YEAR ALONE, AVOID THE DISPOSAL OF OVER 66,000 TONS OF TRASH TO LANDFILLS OVER THE NEXT DECADE, IMPROVE INDOOR AIR QUALITY, THEREBY REDUCING THE INCIDENCE OF ASTHMA AND OTHER RESPIRATORY AILMENTS, LOWER THE UTILITY BILLS FOR HOUSEHOLDS BY HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS EVERY YEAR. COUNTY STAFF AND REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION AND THE NUMEROUS STAKEHOLDERS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS PROCESS SHOULD BE COMMENDED FOR DESIGNING ORDINANCES THAT WILL PRODUCE MEASURABLE RESULTS. AT THE SAME TIME, ALL THREE ORDINANCES HAVE BEEN WRITTEN TO ENSURE THERE ARE REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS AVAILABLE IN CASES WHERE IT IS NOT TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE TO COMPLY WITH THE NORMAL STANDARDS. HOWEVER, THE ADOPTED STANDARD SHOULD BE READILY ENFORCEABLE AND WE MUST REMAIN STEADFAST IN CREATING THE LOOPHOLES THAT WOULD ALLOW THE VERY EFFECTIVENESS OF THESE ORDINANCES TO BE COMPROMISED. WE THEREFORE MOVE THAT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING, FIND THAT THE PROPOSED ORDINANCES ARE CATEGORICALLY EXEMPT FROM THE CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT, INDICATE OUR INTENT TO APPROVE THE REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION'S UNANIMOUS RECOMMENDATION TO APPROVE THE GREEN BUILDING LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT AND DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING ORDINANCES ALONG WITH ALL OF THE CHANGES CONTAINED IN REGIONAL PLANNING STAFF'S REPORTS, INSTRUCT STAFF TO FILE THE APPROPRIATE FINDINGS OF THE CALIFORNIA BUILDING STANDARDS COMMISSION AND OR THE CALIFORNIA ENERGY COMMISSION AND INSTRUCT COUNTY COUNSEL TO PREPARE FINAL ORDINANCES FOR THE BOARD'S CONSIDERATION AT OR BEFORE THE NOVEMBER 18TH, 2008 BOARD MEETING TO INCORPORATE THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL MODIFICATIONS AND ANY OTHER LANGUAGE OR PROCEDURAL CLARIFICATIONS DEEMED NECESSARY BY COUNTY COUNSEL. ONE, REQUIRE THE GREEN BUILDING TASKFORCE TO REVIEW NEW VERSIONS OF THE APPROVE THIRD-PARTY STANDARDS AND TITLE 24 ENERGY STANDARDS ANNUALLY OR MORE OFTEN AS NEEDED AND MAKE A RECOMMENDATION AS TO WHETHER TO ACCEPT OR DENY THE NEW REQUIREMENTS IN THEIR TOTALITY TO THE REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION, WHICH SHALL THEN DECIDE WHETHER TO ADOPT THE TASKFORCE'S RECOMMENDATION. THE DECISION OF THE COMMISSION MAY BE APPEALED TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. TWO, THE PROVISION OF THE GREEN BUILDING ORDINANCE ALLOWING ANY NEW THIRD-PARTY STANDARD TO BE USED UPON APPROVAL OF THE DIRECTOR SHALL BE ELIMINATED. THREE, IN ADDITION TO THE LANDSCAPE PLAN CHANGES RECOMMENDED IN THE STAFF REPORT, FULL LANDSCAPE PLANS SHALL BE REQUIRED FOR ALL DISCRETIONARY PROJECTS, AND THOSE PLANS MUST BE FULLY REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY REGIONAL PLANNING STAFF AS PART OF THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW PROCESS. FOUR, CLARIFY THAT FOR ALL SINGLE-FAMILY LOT TRACK MAPS APPROVED AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS ORDINANCE, THE CATEGORY OF GREEN STANDARDS FOR ALL BUILDINGS DEVELOPED AS A RESULT OF THAT SUBDIVISION SHALL BE DETERMINED BASED UPON THE NUMBER OF LOTS CONTAINED IN THE TRACK MAP. FIVE, AS APPROPRIATE, REQUIRE THAT ALL BUILDING FEATURES THAT ARE BEING USED TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THIRD-PARTY STANDARDS BE SHOWN ON THE PLANS REQUIRED BY THE OFFICE OF BUILDING AND SAFETY TO ENSURE THAT THOSE STANDARDS ARE BEING COMPLIED WITH THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING PROCESS. WE FURTHER MOVE THAT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS INSTRUCT THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICE, IN COOPERATION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS AND REGIONAL PLANNING, TO DEVELOP AN IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR PRESENTATION TO THIS BOARD ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER THE 18TH OF 2008, TOGETHER WITH THE FINAL VERSION OF THESE ORDER ORDINANCES. THIS PLAN SHALL INCLUDE: ONE, THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE GREEN BUILDING TASKFORCE, WHOSE PURPOSE SHALL BE TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR AMENDMENTS TO THE GREEN BUILDING AND DROUGHT- TOLERANT LANDSCAPING ORDINANCES, AND RECOMMEND UPDATES OR AMENDMENTS TO THE GREEN BUILDING AND DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING MANUALS AND OTHER TECHNICAL DOCUMENTS. TWO, GUIDELINES TO ENSURE THAT THE TASKFORCE INCLUDES MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, OTHER INTERESTED STAKEHOLDERS AND COUNTY STAFF FROM APPROPRIATE DEPARTMENTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS, REGIONAL PLANNING, AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. THREE, THE DEVELOPMENT AND DESCRIPTION OF A STAFF TRAINING AND PUBLIC EDUCATION PLAN THAT ENSURES THAT THESE NEW ORDINANCES CAN BE SMOOTHLY INCORPORATED INTO THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW PROCESS AND ADDITIONALLY PROVIDES CONSTITUENTS WITH INFORMATION REGARDING INCENTIVES, THAT IS REBATES, OR TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE RELATED TO THEIR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS. AND FINALLY, WE FURTHER MOVE THAT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS INSTRUCT THE GREEN TASKFORCE TO REPORT BACK TO THE BOARD WITHIN 18 MONTHS AND AS NEEDED THEREAFTER REGARDING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ORDINANCES, INCLUDING HOW EFFECTIVELY THE LANDSCAPING GUIDELINES ARE BEING INCORPORATED INTO RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS AS WELL AS RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING HOW THE PROVISIONS RELATING TO WAREHOUSE, INDUSTRIAL AND MANUFACTURING BUILDINGS SHOULD BE MODIFIED AS THIRD-PARTY GREEN BUILDING STANDARDS EVOLVE."
