City: Trading Greenbacks for “Green”

Will changing the city’s building requirements be a boon or a bust?

The City of Albuquerque climbed aboard the sustainability bandwagon a few years ago, declaring victoriously that all new city vehicles would be powered with alternative fuel. In 2005, it even adopted a law requiring some new structures to meet the guidelines of the world’s most recognized and respected system.

But on Feb. 7, the City Council unanimously this law, replacing it with older conservation rules. Some green-building advocates worry the move may serve as a bellwether for the city’s attitude toward sustainability and speculate about the larger implications of this change.
